Stromness Academy Library

Books, reading and life in a school library

New Term, New Books, Tidy Library


The holidays are so nearly over. The two and a half weeks or so I worked during the holidays have been fairly productive. The ‘to do’ list is nearly all marked off, although there are quite a few follow up jobs still to be worked on.

The library shelves have been tidied. Plants have been potted on where necessary. Dungeons & Dragons activities prep is still ongoing.  Year planning has been thought about. Books have been repaired. New books are on display. Magazines have been tidied. Computers checked. Library cards written up and spare barcodes for S2-6 printed out. Notices refreshed where necessary.

So, one can feel fairly confident we are ready for the new term and would like to welcome everyone back.

Look out for some news in the coming days about our events (National Poetry Day & Spooky Happenings) as well as a very nice surprise donation (two parcels) to help with the Dungeons & Dragons activity.
