The library has an ICT suite which can be booked for class use or pupils can access them for work or recreation.  The library is open from 8.30am-4.00pm daily including break and lunch where there is always a member of staff on hand to help.

 

The staff work in partnership with teaching staff to deliver the Accelerated Reading Programme to our S1 and S2 pupils.  This allows pupils to chose books that are at a suitable level for them then take a quiz on the book they have just read.  The programme is designed to provide challenge without causing frustration allowing them to develop their literacy skills and comprehension as well as encouraging a love of Reading for Pleasure.

 

The library is a busy vibrant place where pupils can meet friends for a chat, study, play games and feel safe.  There is always something going on for pupils to get involved in!
