To be the best me that I can be

School Library

Welcome to Crockerne C of E Primary School Library 

At Crockerne C of E Primary School, we believe that reading should be a vital part of pupils’ daily routine. We devote time during the school day to enjoy reading and listening to a variety of stories, poems or non-fiction texts. As a school we promote a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of different genres. 


Every child can borrow a book weekly from our well stocked library.  Parents/Carers can help at home by listening to your child read or sharing their library book. 

We encourage our children's interest in literacy and books with fun challenges, such as design a book spine or design a book mark.

Our library is supported by Junior Librarian which electronically records the books your child borrows.  All our books have a bar code label attached (usually in the front of the book) which is scanned and issued to the child.  When they have finished reading the book they simply return it to the library, scan the bar code and place it in the box ready for the librarians to return to the appropriate shelf.
