King's Hall has two wonderful libraries – one in our main school building, and the other, close to our Pre-Prep classrooms.
Our Chartered Librarian, Mrs Marcuccilli, oversees both libraries and supports our pupils in their journey to becoming lifelong readers. Passionate about reading for pleasure, Mrs M holds regular book club gatherings, book breakfasts, author visits, book fairs and competitions and as well as writing our library blog, she is also a regular 'tweeter'!

Reading is the Key!
Reading is the key to learning and at King’s Hall the Library is very much at the heart of the school, in every way. It is a vibrant and engaging place where pupils are encouraged to discover the joys of reading for pleasure and it is also a fantastic resource for academic research.
There is a wealth of fiction to discover, as well as a wide range of magazines, newspapers and comics to enjoy. The outstanding non-fiction collection and range of online subscription resources, such as Britannica Schools Online, support all areas of the curriculum.
Regular Library Events
Pupils in all year groups are invited to take part in the hugely popular termly Book Club meetings, to which parents of our younger pupils are also invited. Reading-related activities, competitions and quizzes take place throughout the year to inspire, enthuse and challenge our young readers. In addition, the Library also hosts regular visits from renowned children’s authors including Piers Torday, Abi Elphinstone, Katherine Rundell, Emma Carroll, Gill Lewis and Laura James.
Nursery and Pre-Prep
Our Nursery and Pre-Prep library has been imaginatively stocked by Mrs M, and our children can enjoy their favourite books in this fun space, complete with toadstool chairs! Pre-Prep pupils visit their Library on a weekly basis for a special Library Storytime.
