At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.”
— President (then Senator) Barak Obama
Our school library plays an integral part in the lives of the Kenridge Primary School learners. It is a place where life-long reading habits are shaped and nurtured. Place a book in the hand of a child and he / she will have made a friend for life – a friend who will accompany them on many journeys of discovery and excitement.
Die biblioteekvoorraad word jaarliks aangevul met die nuutste fiksie, asook nie-fiksie titels. Die aankweek van ‘n liefde vir lees is een van die belangrikste doelstellings van die skoolbiblioteek.
All Grade One – Grade Six learners attend the library for a planned lesson and borrowing session during their lesson cycle. During this time they participate in many interesting and enjoyable activities. The library is open before school, during breaks and after school for learners to borrow and return their library books.
Die Graad Ses biblioteekmonitors speel ‘n baie belangrike rol in biblioteek. Hulle ontwikkel leiers-eienskappe, help die ‘biblioteekgebruikers’ en sorg dat die biblioteek te alle tye netjies lyk. Library monitors are students who enjoy helping others, are responsible and can complete tasks independently. They work as a team, together with the Grade Seven senior library monitors, and have a love of all things that make the library such a special place.
“Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them.”
–Arnold Lobel (author)
