Heathfield Student Librarians visit Taunton Library


On Wednesday 10th December, Heathfield’s Student Librarians visited Taunton Library.

Student Librarians work very hard supporting the Library at lunch and break times, and this was a chance to see how a ‘real’ Library operated. We were given a tour round the whole Library, heard about the services that were provided, and glimpsed the goings-on behind the scenes.

We then spent some time browsing the books and picking up ideas for the Library here at Heathfield. Of course, the chance to read and browse the books was the icing on the cake!



During the last week of term we will be selling coffee, bags , mugs and raffle tickets ta lunchtimes on Tuesday 16th, Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th.

This is your last chance to buy gifts before Christmas and most importantly raffle tickets before the draw.

You could win a hamper containing donations from White Stuff, Lakelands, Lush, Waterstones, The Entertainer and many more fantastic items. 50p a ticket or £2 a strip.
