“The only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library”
– Albert Einstein
The library is a very important part of the school and the librarian works closely with teaching staff and pupils – to ensure that the stock is kept relevant, up-to-date and supports both the requirements of the curriculum and the recreational interests of the pupils.
