A leaf out of my book
Pupils also help the librarian order books in library lessons. They look at catalogues and recommend books that the librarian then orders on Amazon. Sometimes pupils are desperate to read the new book and get to take them out before they are accessioned if they have a good return record.
Readership and library usage has increased dramatically. The library is an exciting place now that it is full of popular contemporary fiction.
Reading is like a habit, and like any other learning experience, it is dependent on exposure and positive experiences.
