Group status: Unless you are part of the Carnegie Group the library is closed until 1.00 o'clock!

A serious, dedicated reading group... or not!

Our little 'reading family' consists of passionate readers from Years 7 to 9. We meet every Thursday lunchtime to share excited reflections on what we have been reading (or grumpy groans, depending)! Some of us have been loyal members of the Carnegie shadowing group for three years now. We love the fact that it provides us with a space where we can express our opinions on books that we have read, and get ideas of other books to read or authors to 'follow'. Each year, we celebrate the selection of the winner of the award by visiting a famous library within England. Last year, we visited the British Library in London to see their exciting exhibitions. The year before we went to the Globe Theater to see what it would be like to be there whilst one of Shakespeare's plays were on. Our librarian also sends us on a mission to choose new books for our library, so that we will never run out of exciting stories to read.
