The library is a great place to relax, read or draw. It has lots of comfy places to sit, read, relax or draw, such as a carpet, beanbags armchairs, cushions and a table with chairs to draw. All over the walls are lovely paintings of characters in well-known children’s books and there are nineteen shelves, three boxes and one rack full of books ranging from Jr. Infants reading level all the way up to Sixth Class.
Recently senior school assembly’s have been held there too and there is also a display for the Sixth Class book club. (The Sixth Class book club is a club for the Sixth Class only where they read books and do assignments based on the book that they have read.) There is a computer that is used by the librarians (who are chosen every week from each class) so that the children can borrow books and bring them home.
There is also a section of the library for more educational books such as history or science books. Ann-Margret, our mindfulness teacher, does mindfulness courses each year with different classes in the library, as it is such a relaxing room. It is a great place to relax after working very hard and I think most people really enjoy relaxing there.
