We are very proud of our Library and thought it was about time we had a special place on the website to tell you about everything we do!
Unfortunately the Covid10 Pandemic has meant we've had to delay a few of our plans but, in the mean time, we thought we could still share some news with you and some great resources.
We are launching a Pop-Up Library to cater for children in these strange times! The library will based under the the shelter at the front of the school and has the following operating hours;
|Tuesday||1.30 - 2.45||Reception and Year 1|
|Wednesday||1.30 - 2.45||Year 2 and Year 3|
|Friday||1.30 - 2.45||Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6|
Please do check these times regularly in case they need changing due to unforeseen circumstances.
If your child is already in school the Pop-Up Library will be visiting classes and groups for them to choose a book.
We will also have a Book Returns Box. Before the lockdown we had over 100 books that had been borrowed as well as Reading Scheme books that your teachers may have given out. These can now be returned during your Pop-Up Library visits.
YOU CAN CONTACT US TOO!
We now have an email address which you can use if you'd like to reserve a book which you can then pick up from the Pop-Up Library.
You can also send your Book Reviews, tell us what you have been reading or even pictures of you dressed up as your favourite characters.
We are also excited to announce a link up with Wheelers eBooks. We are trialling this service until 25th August and would like your opinions on it.
This app will allow you to download ebooks and audiobooks for free.
You can download the app for Windows, Android or Apple:
Our library is called.... Grendon
You will also need to put in Username and Password.
The username is your first name and the first letter of your surname and needs capital letters as it is case sensitive. For example:
Harry Potter would type in HarryP
The password for everyone is 'ebook' but you should change this immediately once you have logged in. Should you have any issues then please email the library email address and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Finally, we are continuing our subscription with First News which lots of children access during their reading lessons at school. This weekly newspaper keeps children up to date with what is going on in the world in a child friendly way. You can access this weeks edition by clicking on this link;
