It's Anti-Bullying Week! HAWI's Book of the Week marks the occasion perfectly. "Being Miss Nobody" is about Rosalind who is bullied because she doesn't talk. She starts a blog to make her voice heard..but is she becoming a bully herself? Funny and heartbreaking! https://t.co/TT6zNkjoTB

Teachers and students have an active input in the purchase of fiction and non-fiction books to ensure the library’s resources are relevant to all students’ interests and educational needs. If you can’t find the book you’re looking for, just ask us and we will consider ordering it in.

Donations make a valuable contribution to the library provision. The library at Harris Academy Wimbledon welcomes particularly book donations. Magazines and journals that will enhance the students’ learning are also of great interest. Please contact Ms Nylinder to find out what the criteria are, for the acceptance of donated reading materials.

A range of inspiring reading lists for students who are looking for a great book to read next will be up soon, so watch this space…


Reading events and activities

The library facilitates events all year round to promote a love of reading.  We host an annual Book Fair and celebrate National Poetry Day and World Book Day. All students are encouraged to take part in the House Reading Challenge, which runs throughout the academic year.

Each academic year, a group of students will be invited to shadow the judging process for the prestigious Carnegie Book Award.

 

We very much look forward to seeing you in the library soon!
