5 Bits of Advice About: Your school library

  1. Visit the library and introduce yourself as soon as you can – you might be surprised at the help your librarian can offer.
  2. Many librarians will collaborate with you to deliver a lesson – ideal if you are feeling a bit isolated in the classroom as an NQT.
  3. Learning Resource Centre and LRC are other terms for library – they all do the same thing.
  4. Let your librarian know in advance if you are bringing a class to the library to avoid the chaos of too many children and too few resources.
  5. Be seen to read yourself and never miss the opportunity to recommend a book to a class. Even better – tell your librarian what it is so they can stock it.
