Peak School Library Newsletter
The (very late) Book Day Edition - Part 2
April seems a long time ago now...
On the day, as well as the parade we also had the premiere of our documentary movie " This book changed my life". There is a link below to the movie. It felt like most of the school arrived that lunchtime to watch the movie and it is just so precious to hear how personal books can be to our understanding of ourselves. Do watch it and let me just tell you now - keep some tissues handy.
Finally on Book Day, Year 1 and 2 had an author visit form Jessamy Woolley and the star of her book Billy. More about that follows below.
There's still so much to do in the Library before the end of the year and in the library we are looking for some help, this newsletter also has information about how you can support us make some exciting changes to the library for our junior readers before next year. I do hope you can offer some of your time - we really need all hands on deck!
You can contact us using the details below, or just pop in, we'd love to see you!

HELP!!! - We need you!
The genrification of Junior Fiction.
When school re-starts after the summer what we should have is an area of our fiction library dedicated to junior fiction, any child looking for a spy book should be able to pull off the shelf a box of books at a reading level they can manage with 'Spy books' clearly visible. The aim is to make access to the books that our junior readers want to read much easier. Below is a picture to help you visualise how gentrification works.
With a project this big we are looking for as much help as possible.
Monday 10th June 1.30pm - 3.00pm
This is the time that we have set aside to cover the Paper boxes and get them ready for the books they'll hold. If you can join this working party we can offer you good fun and some yummy treats!
Monday 24th & Wednesday 26th - All day
This is the big one - we will be pulling the books from the shelves and re-classifying them by genre using both stickers and our cataloguing system. Then we will need to get them all back on the shelves again!
Any helping hands are welcome - no prior experience necessary!
