Just a quick post to update readers with the current situation.
Over May Half Term, the library was virtually emptied out. All of the stock had been boxed up during the term and was then taken to Room 9, together with any equipment that we need for the new library. Mrs Robinson will be working in Room 9 until the end of August, getting new resources and equipment ready, planning the new library and developing web-based services.
The old wall between the library and Room 8 was removed and the honour boards taken down and stored safely. These have been carefully photographed to ensure that we have a good record of the names. Eventually, we will re-create the boards in a new format and we are planning on making a very special book with the photographs.
Furniture that is not needed for the refurbishment is being taken away and used in other parts of the school.
The work will begin on the floor on the very first day of the summer holidays – exciting times!
Mrs Robinson will continue to post here during the summer with updates on the development and some “tasters” to show you some of the new resources that she is purchasing for the library.
Watch this space!
