Stromness Academy Library

Books, reading and life in a school library

Fill your Bag with Books


Extraordinary circumstances – library loan limits waived – overdue reminders went out in the last two days and it is preferable but not essential to get them returned or renewed.

Pupils and staff can take as many books as they feel they need for the next few weeks. Ignore the loan date stamped – just for records. No overdues will be sent out.

Remember to get library books stamped out at the desk.

Also please also help yourself to the non-library books off the book swap trolley or the boxes of books on the tables. You might find something your parents or younger siblings might like to read.

If you have any queries in terms of book suggestions, or information requirements in relation to you studies or interested please do not hesitate to contact me via email:

Anyone interested in joining a Microsoft Team to discuss books and reading can get in touch via the above email.

If you like e-books and audiobooks, the Orkney Library & Archive have a loan facility for these. If you are an Orkney Library member, you can use Borrowbox. They also have a digital music lending service called Freegal.   There are also some great online reference resources available at Library Online.

Stay safe over the coming weeks –

  • Develop a daily routine
  • Get your allocated schoolwork done
  • Read
  • Build in relaxation and chilling time
  • Protect your mental health
  • Practise social distancing to keep vulnerable family safe

All the best – will be thinking of you in these times.
