Class 2 enjoyed their trip to the library on Friday 6th December. May I take this opportunity again to thank the parents that accompanied us on the trip and provided transport to enable us to visit the library. Without them it would have been a long walk!!
The children had an excellent visit and one of the librarians, Carolyn, talked to the children – discussing all the different types of books we could find in the library and briefly explained how they were organised. She also read them two books.
We found out how to take books out – that now we use a self service system rather than the librarians stamping the books. The children were amazed to discover that you can have up to 24 books for 3 weeks – you can renew in person, by phone and online! (Children cannot be fined for returning books late!)
Children who had requested them were given library cards to start using as soon as they like and it is our hope that you will visit the library with your child over the Christmas holiday to see the wealth of books Bingham library has to offer – it is one of the best I have seen! The librarians are happy to assist in choosing books and finding particular authors or topics. There are also computers the children can use with a password that the librarians will give you when you visit.
The other reason to go and visit is of course to see your child’s work on display in our Advent Santa. The children were very excited to see their work up and of course want to go and see the Santa when their window or box has been opened (or even to open it on their day! The library is open Mondays 9-1, Tues, Thurs and Fri 9-7, Wednesday 9-12 and Saturday 9-4. Please go and visit it! I will be taking it down in the first week of January.
We hope your child enjoyed the visit and that you enjoy exploring the library facilities when you are next there (there is now a coffee machine available in the library too!!!).
