Story time at the Library

Looking for that special book

Treasure Hunt

Checking a book out of the library

On Friday, 26th October, the whole school paid a visit to Ballyfermot Library.  We were met there by Lara and her colleague who gave us a tour of the library, explaining how books are sorted, showing us special places of interest and how to borrow books if we have a library card.  For the younger children, there was then ‘story time’ in the small children’s area, while the older pupils engaged in a library treasure hunt.  This tested the pupils on the information they learned from the tour of the library. They broke into teams and together they solved all the questions and clues. After a little snack, the children each chose a book to borrow from the library. We hope to visit the library again as a group from time to time during the school year.
