Welcome to Darland Higgh School Library!
School Librarian: Mrs Donna Adcock
The library is open between 8.30pm and 4.30pm including break and lunchtime and is managed by the school librarian who is available to assist with individual research, group work and recreational reading. It is open to all students to encourage reading for pleasure and promoting independent learning.
We have over six thousand books plus journals, magazines and newspapers and as well as timetabled lessons, students visit individually or in small groups from lessons to enhance their learning experience. The library is an extension of the classroom environment.
Their is a fully networked ICT suite housing thirty computers with internet access. Printing and scanning facilities for coursework and projects etc are also available.
We use a fingerprint recognition system to issue books which is secure and easy to use. Students are entitled to borrow two books at any one time for a period of two weeks. Items may be renewed for a further period provided that they are not required by another borrower.
Code of Conduct
We remind users of the library that this is a working environment in which ALL users must respect the need of others and do not disrupt the calm atmosphere we aim to maintain. Regretfully the use of mobile phones, MP3 players, food and drink are not permitted.
