The new Children's Laureate for 2015-2017 has been announced and it is another of my favourite authors: Chris Riddell. You can read his full biography here. I loved his books about Ottoline and the Yellow Cat and I know some of you are fans of his Goth Girl series. Well done to Chris Riddell and to Malorie Blackman for being very supportive of Young Adult books and school librarians during her term as Laureate.
the library can be found in the heart of the school, just behind the main dining area. We have books galore in every genre, style and size, perfect for the avid reader and those who are a bit more reluctant to pick up a book.
We also have an ICT suite with 20 pcs.
The School Library is staffed by a chartered librarian, Miss Catherine Owens and a part-time library assistant Mrs Debbie McPhail.
The catalogue offers staff and pupils access to stock held across the whole of South Ayrshire, which they can borrow and return here at Marr College. To further enhance the library experience we have an app that can be downloaded for apple and android devices, where eBooks and audio books can be easily borrowed.
