We had a 'Guess the Shelfie' Competition running in the library this week to celebrate World Book Day. 17 members of staff were brave enough to give pupils a glimpse into their personal book shelf and pupils had to match the books to the member of staff.
Pupils spent the whole week trying to work out which shelf belonged to which member of staff and a few were pleasantly surprised to see what books teachers were reading at home. There was quite a buzz of excitement in the library leading up to the grand reveal. Three senior pupils won the main prize of a copy of each of the World Book Day books and all other entrants were put into a hat and two runners up were awarded a book each. It was a brilliant day and a celebration of reading.
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.
