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.
Promoting reading, in all forms, is a huge part of the life of the library. This is done in various ways including whole school book events to celebrate World Book Day and Scottish Book Week. Senior students are welcome to use the library to study quietly throughout the day and all students can access the library facilities at lunchtime.
The School Library is staffed by a chartered librarian, Miss Catherine Owens.
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.
