Opening Hours
The library is open from 8.30 am - 4.30pm Mon - Thurs.  8.30 - 3pm on Fridays.

BookGang and BookMafia
If you are an enthusiastic reader, The BookGang and BookMafia are a way for you to meet others with similar interests.  We meet once a week in the Williams Room at the back of the library. BookGang and BookMafia see the new books first, they sometimes have events and being part of this group is a way of eventually becoming part of our fantastic student librarian crew.

Student Librarians
Every year we have a crew of 20 yr 12 and 13 students who run the Issues Desk during interval and lunchtimes. They help with shelving and many other tasks. They are a vital cog in the running of the library.

Games Club @ the library
The library owns an extensive collection of board games and card games of many kinds. Everything from Unstable Unicorns and Exploding Kittens, to Catan and Warhammer.  We try new games all the time and students often bring their own. You can join the Games Club but just turning up after school on the advertised day. New people are always welcomed and the club is run by senior students.
