Books bonus

Happy, healthy and bright … our kids are eager to soak up every bit of knowledge .
And books are so important in helping them to develop their literacy skills and their general knowledge.
We now have almost 8,000 books in our library and Cathy, our librarian, was delighted when more, all donated by friends in the UK, arrived with Elizabeth and Brenda.
She is now busy barcoding and cataloguing them using the Junior Librarian systems so kindly donated to us by specialist-company MLS of Stockport.
The system is a great boon to Cathy who can see at a glance exactly who has borrowed what and can also follow each individual child’s reading pattern.
Classes are held in the library every afternoon to improve reading and understanding and also to teach children how to use reference books, dictionaries etc.
