New borrowing limits!

The reaction to picture book month and a temporary increase in loan limits was received so positively that we have decided to celebrate. Loan limits for most children across school have now been increased. Year 1 can still borrow 2. (They can't really carry much more.) Year 2 and 3 can take 4 books a week and Years 4, 5 and 6 can borrow 5. The children are really happy about this as are we. The children because they have more access to our materials and us because our books are not left on the shelf and are earning their keep!

Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead

Seventh grader Georges moves into a Brooklyn apartment building and meets Safer, a twelve-year-old self-appointed spy. Georges becomes Safer's first spy recruit. His assignment? Tracking the mysterious Mr. X, who lives in the apartment upstairs. But as Safer becomes more demanding, Georges starts to wonder: what is a lie, and what is a game? How far is too far to go for your only friend? Like the dazzling When You Reach Me, Liar & Spy will keep readers guessing until the end.
Available in the LC soon (and in bookshops and online now!)
