Book Lists

Are you looking at developing reading for pleasure across the curriculum?  A great way to do so is by either having an array of subject-related books (both fiction and non-fiction) available in the departments or to feature posters promoting these books displayed in the department.  This is also a great way for all departments to encourage pupil and staff use of the libraries.  Check out our lists to help encourage reading for pleasure in all subject areas!
