Our mobile library is taking a bit of a break, we will let you know when it is back up and running.


 Shadsworth Infant’s Lending Library


Dear Parents

Welcome to Shadsworth Infants School’s lending library. We will be available every Friday morning from 8.45am in either the playground or the ECaR Training Centre (old nursery). We have a good selection of both fiction and non-fiction books available to borrow.


Loan period

Children are allowed to borrow one book at a time.  Each book can be borrowed for a maximum of 21 days, but we encourage the children to exchange their books every week to encourage good library habits.  We are glad to renew loans if you wish, unless the book has been requested by another child.


We send out reminders for overdue library books once a term, and at the end of the summer term we ask for all library books to be returned so we can do a stock check. 


Caring for library books

Please encourage your children to look after their library books.  The rules are: try not to tear or crease the pages, handle the books with clean hands, don’t bend the spines back or remove the plastic jackets.  


Requests and reservations

We keep a messages book so children can tell us about books they would like to see in the library.  Parents are welcome to make suggestions too!  If a child would like a book that is out on loan to someone else, we can reserve the book for them


Lost or damaged books

If you think your child has lost or badly damaged a library book, please contact Mrs Salt or Mrs Lord.  We ask for a contribution of £5 towards the cost of replacing the book. If the book is subsequently found, this payment will be refunded.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         


We look forward to seeing you on a Thursday morning. Please do not hesitate to ask for help with browsing or choosing books from the library.



Mrs Salt and Mrs Lord
