The Library at Kingdown School

The Library is open from 8.30am until 4.00pm on Mondays and 8.15am until 4.00pm Tuesdays to Thursdays.  It is open until the end of Break 1 on Fridays and is manned by a student librarian during Break 1.

Students are welcome to use both the library and E14 (a computer suite attached to the library) at break times although there are only 6 PCs available during Break 2 for schoolwork/homework only.

The Library is a peaceful area where students are welcome to come and read, do schoolwork or just sit quietly and we also do Mindfulness colouring at Break 2.

The library itself had an overhaul in 2011 with redecoration, sorting of the layout and major re-organisation of stock. This allowed a streamline of the non-fiction books to take place and offer greater variety in the fiction stock, with a program of updates to the stock. The Library continues to encourage students to tell Mrs Harris what they would like to see or read in the Library by use of a suggestions book on the Library desk.

Mrs Harris, plus a TA, runs Session 6 (general Homework club) in the Library annexe after school Mondays to Thursdays where students have access to the PCs or the books in the Library, should they need them, to complete their Homework in a quiet environment.
