“Every Child Deserves a Great School Library”
We are lucky at Ryedale School to have a fantastic purpose-built library. Creating a vibrant, engaging and welcoming environment is vital to developing good reading habits and our modern and colourful library is well-used and loved by students.
Students may visit the library to read books, choose books or simply to talk about books. They may use it as a work or research space, taking advantage of the banks of computers, or a quiet space away from the bustle of school life.
Mrs Brown, our librarian, supports and encourages students in their reading choices and with research for academic work, and regularly reviews the range of resources to keep it diverse and current. Mrs Brown also runs many reading-based competitions each year and there are always exciting displays of new resources.
Many students extend their reading repertoire by using our on-line library catalogue Eclipse. Eclipse also keeps students up to date with news from the library including new resources. It allows pupils to search for books they would like to read, read and write book reviews, and watch authors’ video clips.
