Welcome to the Hillcross Primary School Library web page
We are extremely lucky at Hillcross to have such a wonderful library for all of our students and staff to use.
Our library is Jungle themed and the children love visiting to have a quiet read or to take books out to enjoy at home.
When classes are not visiting the library, it is also used as a learning hub and the children benefit from a calm and engaging environment to learn in.
We have four volunteers who help to keep our library running smoothly, as well as four staff members who oversee the day to day operation (see below).
Our school library prefects are James, Colin, Dara and Jemoses who also help to keep the library a wonderful place to enjoy and ensure it is looking spick and span for when classes visit.
Each class all the way from Nursery up to Year 6 has the opportunity to visit the library once a week.
Reception to Year 6 are able to take out a book each for up to 2 weeks at a time.
Reading for pleasure is fundamental to Hillcross Primary School and we offer a vast range of books for all ages including fiction and non-fiction books, newspapers, comics and topic related reference books.
The librarians are on hand most days to answer any queries the children may have and to help with the scanning in and out of books, to allow the class teacher quality time with their class.
We host a Scholastic Book Fair annually where books are showcased and can be purchased and have termly book swap events in the school hall where you can bring in a book or two to swap for a new one.
These events are extremely popular.
We also are now able to offer the @home Junior Librarian access where children can search for books, write reviews, see what books they have on loan and much more.
