This week several new books were added to the library stock. Some of which were requested by students. There is a box in the library for your book requests, so if there is something you would like to read that is not stocked, please put a note in the box and Mrs Hancock will do her best to get it.

Some of these new books are; the 2 new Patrick Ness books, 'The Ask and the Answer' winner of the Costa Children's book award and 'The Knife of Never Letting go' also a winner of the Guardian fiction prize. Other new books include, Bear Grylls 'Mission Survival' and also titles by Andy McNab and Darren Shan.

Accelerated Reader students have been busy reading and quizzing. The top of the word count list in Year 7 at the moment is Niamh Stephen with 79,095 words read. The Year 8 word chart topper is Nathan Armitage with 345,048 words, an amazing amount.

Our Kernow Youth Book Award group is up and running. We have had 2 meetings so far this term and the team is working its way through the chosen books for the award. If you are a Year 7 student and an avid reader, please come and see Mrs Hancock to take part in the group. Have a look at the wall display in the library which shows you our team from last year at the Award Ceremony at the Keay Theatre.

Don't forget the stationary shop is open at breaks in the library, so come and stock up on your pens, pencils etc.
