Welcome to Werneth School Library!

The library is run by Mrs H Taylor: helen.taylor@wernethschool.com

Unfortunately for the moment we are unable to allow groups of students in the library during social times.

Ordinarily we would be open every day before school from 8am, after school until 4pm and every break and lunchtime, to read, study, research and complete homework. The laptops would also be available to anyone wishing to use them.


When will my child use the library?

All students in years 7 and 8 have fortnightly library lessons. During this time, they will be allowed to reserve books using our Reserve and Read service, return books and have some reading for pleasure time.


Becoming a student librarian

Werneth's library is a busy, vibrant space during opening hours, and the librarian has 10 students to help her to keep the library running smoothly.

Librarians are selected by following an application process. Student librarian posts are advertised, application forms filled in, interviews conducted and 'trial' weeks worked before job posts are filled, just as they would for any job.

Librarians are following an SLA recommended award scheme gaining certificates and awards for completing various tasks. It is not just about issuing and stamping books!

For more information about any of the above, please see Mrs Taylor for more details or email her at helen.taylor@wernethschool.com


Reserve and Read.

Eclipse login https://readingcloud.net/
Eclipse Hosted is our school library catalogue, where you can search for library items, reserve books you want to read, and review books you have read. To review and reserve books, and to see your library loans, you will need a login. Please see Mrs Taylor or your English Teacher. To search for items, just click on the 'search' tab. Once you have clicked on a book you can reserve it and it will be delivered during one of your English lessons.

The IMLS app will let you view your loans, review and reserve library books from the comfort of your own home. This can be downloaded from the App Store. Please see Mrs Taylor or your English teacher for your login details.


The Werneth School Virtual Library: We have recently launched our virtual library. Here you will find free books to read and listen to while you are learning from home and even when you return back to school. You can browse the library shelves and click on the book you would like to read. The library will regularly be updated with new books throughout the year.
