The school library is able to borrow books from The Orkney Library. In most cases this is inconnection with curricular projects supplementing our own stock. These books are placed on the Project Shelves near to the issue desk and are available for referenece only (ie. not able to be borrowed).
Books and / or other material which is not available in the school library can be obtained for you. It is recommended that you go to ‘The Orkney Library’ yourself but if you are unable to do so, please speak to Mrs Sinclair who can try and obatain the resources on your behalf.
If the books are not available, then you can apply for an Inter Library Loan, either via the school library or the public library who will request the books from other libraries in the UK.
This service is particularly useful for senior pupils researching and writing dissertations for their subjects.
Please note that there is a fee for this service of £5.20 for an Inter-library loan or £3.25 with a student concession.
