Beeslack High School is fortunate enough to have a fully functioning library, with a variety of reliable resources. Along with the collection of fiction open for pupils to borrow, the library also has an informative non-fiction section which provides a great source of information for various classroom projects. The library also has an up to date computer suite, for pupil use. The library offers a period of English theory work for assistance in various basic skills.
Information about the Libary
Beeslack Community High School has a welcoming, well-stocked library, staffed by the Librarian, Mrs Wren. The library is open to all members of staff and pupils registered with the school.
It is our intention to provide the best service we can for all our users – so do come along and have a look at what’s on offer.
The Library is open to staff and pupils during class time throughout the week. All S1 and S2 classes come to the Library for one period each week and senior pupils also make use of our facilities for study and research.
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes: pupils can come to the library to borrow books, carry out research or use the computers for school related work from 12.35 - 1pm
- Tuesday and Thursday lunchtimes: the library is used by the BRAW and Senior Book clubs until 12.50pm.
- The S1/S2 Homework Club and the S4 Study Support Group also meet in the library on a Tuesday and Thursday from 3.50- 4.30pm.
Besides a well used book stock, we have 5 computers and a scanner in the Library itself; a further 9 PC computers and a scanner are also available in the attached ICT Room. All the computers have access to the Internet: in addition, there are a number of CD ROM encyclopaedias available on request.
We also have an excellent careers library situated within the Library itself which pupils can use to find information on how to choose a career and the qualifications required, if any, to pursue their choice. Our Careers Advisor, Carla Bichan, also holds Wednesday careers clinics for pupils in the library. It is not necessary to make an appointment for this and pupils from all year groups are welcome.
