Welcome to the Soar Valley library! Here you’ll find the library’s online catalogue, so you can explore what we have to offer. You can also explore all the links below for lots of things to read and do – including where you can find books for free online. Follow us on Twitter for regular updates, challenges, and book recommendations.
About the library
The library is open from 8am to 4pm each day, including in break and lunch times. We run a board games club every morning before school, and quiet study time from 3pm to 4pm.
You can borrow a book for up to 4 weeks at a time, and you can have up to 4 books out at once. After the 4 weeks are up, you can renew your book for longer – just ask a librarian!
Years 7, 8, and 9 have regular library lessons where they can choose library books, take part in class reading and activities, and develop the skills they need to read for pleasure.
