Here at St Patrick's, all students have the opportunity to boorrow a number of books from the library each week. Students come with their class teacher for 15-20 minutes to select their books. Library borrowing is an important part of the school week and all children are encouraged to borrow books to read both at school and at home. Each class has a borrowing day and the children with the help of parents need to remember to bring along their library bag so that they can borrow books for the week. Books can be returned at any time before the next borrowing day by placing them in the boxes that are left on the seats outside the library. If children are away or forget, they can always pop into the library during break times to borrow. With the encouragement of parents and teachers, children have the best chance to foster a love of literature and reading.
