Our Year 2 children really enjoyed their visit to Coulsdon library and for many it was their first return to any library since COVID.
After a story and talk from the librarian, the children were able to explore the children’s library and enjoyed browsing the fiction and non-fiction sections for a book. Many children scanned the shelves for their favourite authors while others were keen to locate a non-fiction text for a topic of interest.
Finally, the children were given their own library cards and they were shown how to check out their books with the automated system by scanning their library card and the book they had chosen.
The children were delighted to be able to take their book home to read and we hope that this visit will inspire our pupils to continue to love reading and to encourage them to get back to regularly visiting their local library to discover new book titles.
We do hope that all of our pupils will take part in the Summer Reading Challenge that the librarian talked about. Please see the Reading section of our website for more details. Mrs Wright (Reading Manager).
