Using the Shetland Library book catalogue at home



The library is a place to study, look for information, find a good read, pick a movie to

watch over the weekend, play a game of Wii with your pals, or just hang out and relax.

We have a great selection of fiction and non-fiction books, DVDs, CDs, local newspapers and magazines, dictionaries, atlases and other learning materials and digital resources. There is also access to computers and a comfortable seating area.

The school library is a part of the Shetland library service. That means we can order books from other school libraries as well as the Public Library and the Learning Centre.

The library is managed by Tanya Odie, full time librarian, and Lynn Goodlad, part-time library assistant.

The library is open  8.30 am to 4 pm Monday-Thursday and 8.30 am to 2.10 pm Friday

Intervals – open

Lunchtimes – open for quiet reading, study/homework, board games, arts & crafts

Pupils can borrow up to eight books for one month.
Books can usually be renewed provided nobody else had requested them.
DVDs can be borrowed for one week, one a time.
