WELCOME TO OUR LIBRARY PAGE
At Four Lanes Junior School we recognise the importance of reading (especially reading for pleasure). With this in mind, we are proud to have a well-stocked and maintained library – with over 4,000 books for our children to use and enjoy. In addition to this, we are able to borrow 900 books from Hampshire School Library Service which helps to keep our library as up to date as possible.
To assist in the running of the library, we currently have 9 pupil librarians, one from each class (Year 4 upwards) as well as 2 additional Year 6 helpers. The librarians are trained to assist, not only the librarian but also their peers in the choosing and borrowing of books.
Within the library our display boards are updated to inspire the children to read. We have an ‘Author of the Month’ display. This board includes information about the author as well as some of the books they have written. This year the pupil librarians have assisted in the nominating and choosing of these authors. We also have a ‘Library News’ board, not only to give information about what happens in the library but give ideas for suggested reading with a ‘Book of the Week’ – this is one book from any section of the library, so over the weeks should cover many interests and abilities.
Over lunchtime, we currently run 2 library clubs: Tuesday for lower school and Thursday for upper school. These sessions can be attended by anyone who would like 30 minutes of book related fun.
