Junior School Resource Centre

Each fortnight when the boys visit the library I encourage them to borrow:

  • A picture and/or chapter book that they can share with their family or read independently.
  • A book from the non-fiction collection on a topic of interest or a new skill they would like to learn.
  • Only one "hot topic" book so these popular resources are shared around. These include Minecraft, Lego, Star Wars etc. or multiple books from the same series.

An important component of this process is the boys sharing their reading with their parents. Your support in discussing your child's reading, sharing their books with them, discussing what you enjoy reading, will enhance their reading experience.

By following this process hopefully the boys will expand their choices, think about their interests and not always borrow the same type of book. The boys are welcome to come and change their books at any time during the week - they don't need to wait until their next library session.
