At St Patrick's, the library plays an integral part in the teaching and learning of the school.
The library is a place where the children are enabled to read widely for enjoyment, enrichment and recreation. The school library is open every day and is accessible to all children.
Children enjoy borrowing sessions with their teacher each week, where they are encouraged to borrow appropriate books for their age and their reading ability. All children are encouraged to participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge each year.
To borrow books, children must have a library bag (which is available from the School Office). Children are expected to take good care of library resources and will be expected to replace lost or damaged books.
