Here at The Henry Beaufort School we have a great team of Student Librarians from Year 8, 9 and 10 who help in the LRC at break and lunch times and also before and after school.
The team are responsible for leading events, competitions and activities as well as helping to create displays, choose new stock and write content for the LRC newsletter.
Student Librarians have the opportunity to work towards five awards (First, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) whilst they are in post. These awards are all affiliated with the School Library Association and are nationally recognised. Every month one member of the team is also chosen as Student Librarian of the Month by the School Librarian.
Advertising for Student Librarians begins in May every year, at which time Year 7, 8 and 9 students can apply ready to begin in role at the start of September. All applicants are required to fill in an application form and pass an interview to be selected for the position.
