New Click and Collect Library for Year 7 students Do you prefer reading a physical book?
Chorlton High School understand that for some students reading online is not an option or less enjoyable than reading a physical book. In order to support this we are trialing a Click and Collect library for Year 7’s over the next two weeks.
Parents and carers and students will be able to email in their book requests to: Libraryhelp@chorltonhigh.manchester.sch.uk
Don’t worry if you are not sure what you want. Just give us a rough idea of interests (Fiction, Non Fiction, type of book etc.) Library staff can put together a small selection of books, taking into account what students have enjoyed in the past. If we need more information we will contact you.
If you want to see what is available in the library then you can search the Library Catalogue using the following lin:. www.microlibrarian.net
This lists all the books in the library, although please be aware that some books will already be out to other students.
You will then receive an email saying that the books are ready for collection from Chorlton High School reception area.
Books can be collected at the following times: Tuesday and Thursday from 3pm-4pm.
Library staff will be available during these times to hand out the books. If we are busy, we may ask you to queue outside. Library books can also be returned during these times as well.
All library books will be wiped down with sanitizer prior to being distributed. Once returned, all borrowed books will be set aside for 72 hours and sanitized prior to becoming available for borrowing again.
At present this service is being trialed for Year 7 students. We hope that you find it useful in supporting your child in their reading. If successful, it may become available to other year groups as well.
