There are lots of new books in the library to lend, thanks to our generous Scholastic fair commission from our March fair. We sold over £1300 of books which supports us in continuing to update our stock, ensuring students have access to the latest releases and popular books.
We have updated our Graphic novel section including popular titles linked to TV and Netflix such as Heartstopper and Five Nights At Freddys and also new historical fiction and classics such as Romeo and Juliet, Robinson Crusoe, The Lost World and King Arthur! There is the entire Amulet series of graphic novels as well as some new titles in the popular Babysitter’s Club series of books. Additionally, there are more titles in our well-being and LGBTQ+ section in both fiction and non-fiction. A whole box set of Alice Oseman books have been added which are enjoying huge popularity. Requests are already pouring in to borrow them!
Millionaire status is achievable by choosing a series of books and we now have all the Disney Twisted Tales as well as all the Little People, Big Dreams titles. All of the titles are in a range of reading levels for all students to access. There are lots of people to choose from to inspire students with cross curricular links such as David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Andy Warhol, RuPaul, Bruce Lee, Captain Tom Moore, Coco Chanel, Ella Fitzgerald, Prince and Vivienne Westwood! Yet more abridged and accessible versions of Shakespeare’s plays are also available. Most of the new books are quizzable which can help pupil progression in their reading ages and rewards in library lessons.
Additionally, check out new books by Marcus Rashford and Ian Wright, alongside our other sports related additions such as The Ultimate Guide to Women’s Football! Our PHSE new books include Guides to Girl Power, more Dr Christian Guides to growing up, and further self-help, self-motivation and self-confidence books to improve mental health. Another popular genre is the paranormal, and following requests for more books, there are a large selection of new titles to happily haunt fans including Stranger Things and Goosebumps books related to the Fear Street movies!
We have also added the latest titles from popular authors such as Alesha Dixon, Michael Morpurgo, Karen McManus, Angie Thomas, Suzanne Collins and Alice Oseman. Many are also award winning books.
New books always create a huge buzz of excitement in the library, particularly those which can link to a film (try reading the book first for comparison), so come and browse what is on offer to take home for your summer holiday reads!
