The modern and well-resourced Library at St George’s is a vibrant hub of activity. Located in the Luker building, which was opened in 2016, it is enjoyed by girls, both academically and recreationally, throughout the School year.
The Library is a place for all year groups to use in a variety of different ways; from First, Second and Third Year reading lessons to private study periods in the Fourth Year and above.
With seating, including comfortable beanbags, for more than seventy pupils, it is a very spacious area of the school that the girls enjoy spending time in. Alongside the physical collection of fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, and multimedia, the Library also provides access to a vast array of online resources.
Staffed by a Head Librarian and Deputy Librarian between the hours of 8.15am and 6.45pm, there is always a qualified member of staff on hand to help pupils with any query; whether it is finding the right book to read for pleasure or helping the girls to navigate and critically interrogate the online information landscape.
Pupils are encouraged to feedback and suggest continual service developments that best meet their needs. A Library Prefect in the Upper Sixth works closely with the Librarians to ensure that the Library is a responsive and valuable part of the St George’s community and she is supported by Library Assistants in the younger years.
