Welcome to Library
St Christopher’s is justifiably proud of its purpose built library which is situated in the very heart of the campus in Saar. The library, built to an individual design is a large, open plan space on two levels. The provision in the library is outstanding with over 40,000 books plus a constantly growing Arabic library book section. The library is also resourced with Kindles and has a Maths lending library with over 200 games.
Reading both for pleasure and academic study is a fundamental strand of the library’s work and our aim is to nurture a whole school reading community. Additionally, reading libraries in the classrooms help to ensure that a wide range of books are readily available to the pupils at all times.
The library is noted for its colourful and exciting display work, often reflecting classroom initiatives – whether that is celebrating Growth Mindset or recognising the exciting and diverse nationalities that make up St Christopher’s School.
St Christopher’s library strives to serve the whole school community and is open in the morning before school so parents and pupils can share the joy of reading together.
All pupils visit the library for a timetabled 30 minutes session each week. Depending on age, they may have a story with one of the librarians or engage in a library skills game or author based activity.
