King's Hall has two wonderful libraries – one in our main school building, and the other, close to our Pre-prep classrooms.
Our qualified librarian, Mrs Marcuccill, oversees both libraries, and when she's not offering support to our children, she can be found with her nose in a good book!
Passionate about reading, Mrs M holds regular book sales, breakfast clubs, mystery reader cafes and author visits, 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.
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!
