On Monday, 16 eager readers from Year 6 gathered in the library to begin learning the skills that they will need to be fully fledged King’s Hall Reading Ambassadors. It was wonderful to have so many keen volunteers who are looking forward to assisting their peers and generally spreading the love of all things bookish – oh, and wearing a very important-looking lanyard of course!
We began by running through some of the nuts and bolts of library organisation, recapping the 10 main Dewey subject areas and practicing locating various non-fiction topic areas within our library collection. After all, if they can find their way around our own collection using their knowledge of the Dewey system, they will have no difficulty navigating any other library. Mrs M was delighted with their hard work and dedication, and it was a great pleasure to award them with the first stamp on their training records. Well done to all!
