The Accelerated Reader Programme for Year 7 and Year 8 has been a great success which means Writhlington School have had to create Junior Librarian Posts for Year 7 and Year 8 students, and they have been a great help already!
The selection was based on those students who genuinely have a love for books, love reading and a willingness to help and enthuse fellow students. The application letters received were fantastic and the enthusiasm coming from the letters certainly covered the aspects of the job the library was hoping for.
The jobs the Junior Librarians do will include: getting to know the library stock of both fiction and nonfiction, in order to help all students whether they love reading or not to select an appropriate book, keeping the shelves tidy, returning and issuing books and of course having a say on displays and authors/genres they would like to see promoted in the library. After all, the library is for all students whatever their year and whatever their demands are.
