About the library 

Opening Hours:

We are open throughout each school day until 3.30pm. Mrs Costello is our fabulous librarian who engages our children with her love of reading. She ensures our library is up to date with the latest, most popular authors and genres. We believe our school library must be one of the best in the country! Each class visit once per week but children are also encouraged to join library clubs, change their books as often as they choose and enjoy books in our Reading Lounge at break times. At Headfield we are a reading friendly school where our children's minds are opened to the literacy world and the joys it brings.

 Our brand new Reading Lounge (shown above) is an outdoor snug free for children to enjoy their favourite books in a peaceful environment at playtimes.

Loans:

  • Children are allowed to borrow up to 2 items at any one time.
  • You can borrow items for up to 2 weeks – after that they will become overdue and you will either have to return or renew the items.
  • Any items long overdue, damaged or lost will have to be paid for.

 

What you can find in the library:

We have over 6,000 items in the library.  Our wide range of books includes picture books, ones for children who aren’t quite yet confident readers, titles for those with reading difficulties or dyslexia, dual language titles as well as books to challenge more confident readers.
