A Dis-QUIETed Library

Yes, the library is still very much present in 2017, but it doesn’t look like it has in previous years! Just as the tunnels running through the lavender garden were still present; just not as noticeable as when woven with bright strips of material, so too the library (not being in a single location) is not as visible as previous years.

The beginning of 2017 saw the resources of BPCS library collection separated into thirteen smaller and targeted collections and rehoused in multiple learning spaces, with the Young Adult collection remaining in the College Boathouse, as it had in 2016. Junior Fiction is now to be found nestled in the Early Childhood Atelier space, while the general Fiction has been distributed into our seven classrooms. Non-Fiction, being harder to break into small collections based on reading ages, is shelved in four locations across the school.

 

Our large collection includes; 3,250 Fiction (made up of 750 Junior Fiction, 2,500 Fiction) and 2,300 Non-Fiction separate items; along with book-carts, bookcases and shelving. About two tonnes in all.

So far this year 1,600 items have been added to the catalogue – and the collection is growing still. Keeping track of all the items – books, texts, teacher resources, equipment sets . . . where they are, who has borrowed them, when they are due back – is an exciting adventure! The library resource cataloging & tracking system itself is in the process of being changed from Bookmark to Oliver (a far superior system). We expect that there will be some hiccups and disruptions as this change happens but borrowings can happen as normal (seek me out if you have any questions).

New and loved (but outgrown) donations to the Library collection are, as always, most welcome and these can be left with a note for me (Amanda) in the Multi-Function Room.

A Message from our Library Coordinator, Amanda.
