Last week we had the pleasure of working with a group of pupils from Keresley Newland Primary Academy, all very keen readers and budding pupil librarians! They visited us at our library and training room in Warwick for a fun introduction into how a library is run , organised and maintained. IMG_0490They learnt about the library environment, stock maintenance, the Dewey Decimal System, customer care and team work.

Here are a few of their comments from the day:

‘I learnt how to be a good librarian’
‘I learnt a librarian should be caring, kind and helpful’
‘I loved everything, today was amazing!’
‘I have learnt how to treat customers equally’
‘Now I know how to put the books into Dewey Decimal order and alphabetical order’
‘I have learnt how to care for my library’
‘I found the scenarios useful…I know what to say now’

The pupils (pictured above with their certificates and headteacher Fiona Hims) were fantastic and left the session excited and enthusiastic about the changes that they could make to their new library and the different ways that they could promote reading to their classmates and teachers.

These sessions are always incredibly popular with schools and we often plan and tailor them to specific school and pupil needs – do get in touch with us if you would like some more information: schoolslibraryservice@warwickshire.gov.uk
