You have everything you need....

If you have a garden and a library, have everything you need.
Cicero was a very learned Roman stateman who lived from 106 BC to 43 BC.
Do you think these words are still true, more than 2000 years later, in 2014?

Our Library in 2014

Welcome to 2014. The weather is already looking rather autumnal, so snuggling up with a book certainly appeals!

We have lots of exciting things happening at the moment!

The Library is being used as a classroom by our Senior Class, until their new classroom is completed in a few weeks. We still manage to fit in visits by other classes whenever possible. We have lots of new students at school, who are finding out what a fabulous Library we have here at Springston School.

Over the holidays we have updated our Library software system, and have made the switch from Musac to Access-It. Karen is busy doing online training and getting the system in place.

One important change will mean that you will be able to search our school catalogue and reserve books from any computer, no matter where it is. So, you can see what books are available from your classroom, or even from home. There will even be access to web links on some topics.

And last but not least, we have new Librarians who are almost ready to start. Look out for an introduction from them soon.
