Sounds like a lovely job. Our librarian runs a book club and has library monitors, (Year 6). issues lists of books that are overdue and orders new ones. She’s involved in world book day too. There’s sometimes a book quiz competition. The library issues and returns run on a simple database system that the children can operate too (junior librarian) There is a space for children to relax, browse books, some colouring sheets and pencils. It’s all low shelving and bean bags and bright colours. Ideally I would like to see a good range of books- Fiction and non-fiction including new publications. Very short chapter books for readers who are just finding their feet are usually especially needed.

So by some miracle I've just landed the job of librarian at a primary school! I currently work in Admin / finance in an early years setting and while I'm really excited about the role, I don't have any practical library experience. The role is only over 3 x half days per week, working under a member of the SLT. Can anyone give me any info on what I can expect? Be it how your school library operates, what you'd like to see in it. If you are in a similar role and wouldnt mind sharing what you do in a normal day I'd really appreciate it!! Thank you flowers
