Year 3 Library Visit

On Wednesday, Year 3 were invited to visit Aldershot Library. We were met by a lovely librarian called Kate, who had some library cards prepared for those of us who had applied for one. Kate talked us through how to use the library efficiently, including looking for fiction books arranged by the authors surname and using dewy numbers to locate non-fiction books. We discovered that joining the library is free and that we can borrow books for four weeks, which really excited us because there were so many amazing books that we wanted to look at! After this, Kate read us a story that linked to our Egyptian topic and then gave us some time to look around and choose a book if we had brought our own library cards. The most important thing that we learnt from our visit to the library was that they do so much more than just lend books. There are learning courses here, movie afternoons, craft days and even a Harry Potter evening coming up soon. The library is such a great place, we can't wait to go back!
