Drop-In Centre:

Library May 2017 026

  Currently out of action, the Drop-In Centre is available during timetabled periods mainly for the use of Sixth Form students. Years 7-11 must be accompanied by a teacher. A maximum of 10 Sixth Form and/or 10 younger students are permitted in the Drop-In at any one time. 

The Drop-In centre, when available, is open for general use to all students at lunchtime. 

As with all computer rooms, this area is monitored by the Librarian. Food or drink is not allowed.

Borrowing:
All students are members of the library and can take out up to 3 books at any one time, for a period of 3 weeks. Sixth form students can borrow up to 6 for 6 weeks.

 

OVERDUE BOOKS
Please note that overdue books should be returned to the library as soon as possible.
The deadline for Overdue books - Reminders will be sent out every half-term. With regret, due to the large number of books being lost as a result of not being returned, parents will be invoiced for the cost of replacing any books not received by this date.
This is especially relevant to students leaving LSS.
Thank you,
Miss Torrens (Librarian).

Library Resources:
The Library stocks a wide range of periodicals and monthly subject reviews for student use. These are reference only and may not be borrowed. The Library photocopier is available for students who wish to copy articles. Please ask the Librarian for assistance if necessary.

Student Librarians
Students are encouraged to have an active role and input into the Library and in our team there are student librarians representing most year groups.
If you are interested in becoming a student librarian, please contact Ms Torrens for information on how to do so.

 

The Student Librarians play a very important role in the day-to-day upkeep of the library and our new recruits will be joining a team that works very hard to ensure that such a huge volume of books, magazines and articles is cared for well.
