We are delighted to welcome you all to Rosh Pinah Library.
The library has a lot to offer pupils of the school, whatever subjects they are studying and at whatever levels.
You will be expected to follow some simple guidelines whilst in the library:
- No Eating or Drinking
- Remember to use a quiet voice so that you do not disturb others
- Clean up after yourself. Put books back on the proper shelves, tuck in your chair
- Respect for all the books please
- Damage or writing in books is not permitted
- Please do not run in the library
- Respect teachers, staff members and other pupils at all times
- At home keep books clean, dry and safe from pets
HOW THE LIBRARY WORKS
Every pupil will be given their own id number, which will be kept in the library. All the books in the library are in a specific order. Each section is labelled accordingly and if you are browsing, please put each book back where is came from.
Once you have chosen the book you would like to borrow, take this to the librarian who will make a record of your choice and give you the date that the book needs to be returned.
HOW MANY BOOKS CAN YOU CHECK OUT?
Reception: 1 book Year 1 & 2: 1 book Year 3 - 6: 2 books
Pupils in any year may ask the librarian at any time for additional books for research or special projects.
Reference materials and audio books may circulate IN SCHOOL ONLY for one day and may NOT be taken home. Each pupil is responsible for items which appear on the library card.
HOW LONG CAN YOU HAVE THE BOOKS?
Year 1 & 2: 1 week Reception: 1 week Year 3 – 6: 2 weeks
WHAT DOES OVERDUE MEAN?
Overdue means your book is late being returned Reminders will be sent on a regular basis.
If the book gets lost, we will ask you to replace the book. This can either be done by yourself or just send a cheque made payable to Rosh Pinah Primary School and we will replace this on your behalf.
We have a wonderful blue post-box outside the library and all the children need to do is just post their book in it.
