Here are a few of the things to look forward to:

BOOK SWAP – Bring a book, take a book! Do you have any pre-loved books you no longer want to keep? Would you like to acquire some new (to you) books? A book swap will run from next Wednesday in the library (and staffroom). Donations to populate the trolley gratefully received prior to the launch. Books (fiction or non-fiction) should be in very good or excellent condition (no scribbles, mildew, stained pages, etc) and suitable for the school population.
