Our school library is bursting with a range of books for our children to enjoy. It is a bright and inspiring spot where children can enjoy browsing, reading and borrowing from our extensive collection. Children are invited to get comfy on our sumptuous beanbags and enjoy a book independently or with a friend.
We have an enthusiastic team of volunteer librarians who look after our books, re-shelve the returns and help children with their enquiries. Our volunteers have spent time ensuring that the library is an inviting and exciting place and welcome the children, always ensuring that they leave with a book that suits their interests.
Everyone from our earliest readers to our chapter book explorers enjoys time in our bright, space themed library. Our fiction section holds both classic stories and the latest literature written for children.
At Hatfeild we are lucky enough to have a reference library for our Key Stage Two children, where they can explore our vast array of non-fiction. This space helps them to explore the world in which we live and follow up on their interests and hobbies.
From Reception upwards, all children at Hatfeild visit the library on a two-week cycle with their class, this gives them the chance to borrow a book to take home. We also have our book-swap shed that is located outside the school office. This gives everyone in the school community (even the adults), the opportunity to bring a book that they have read and swap it for one that they have not.
