Back in January Hans Price LRC applied to the Siobhan Dowd Trust about a grant opportunity which funds students to select and buy books for their school libraries. Hans Price was lucky enough to be chosen so at the beginning of April a group of book loving students travelled to Bristol to choose the books they felt the LRC was missing.
The students involved organised their own budget, browsed through hundreds of books, changed their minds countless times and finally made some great selections for everyone to enjoy in our LRC. All the new books are on the shelves and ready to be borrowed!
To allow even more students to have their favourite books and summer wishlist titles added to the LRC collection, we are using part of the grant money to order from another independent bookseller. This order will be entirely made up of books requested by students. There are a limited number of books we can buy so you need to make the request for your books as convincing as possible to give them the best chance of making the list and being available for you to borrow!
You can use one of the book request forms available in the LRC to submit your suggestion or use your creativity to make your book choice really stand out!
Visit the LRC and speak to Ms Allchurch if you have any questions or tweet the LRC @HansPriceLRC.
