Year 9 and 10 English Students Choose Books for the Library


Today, Year 9 and 10 English students spent a lesson discovering new books and making suggestions for the Cabra College libraries.

Students used links from the Senior Library Blog to explore the wealth of reading sites available. Pupils then had a crash course on searching our brand new Access-It Library Catalogue to check if we already had the books; if not a comment was left for Mr Bull about which titles to purchase. If you have a suggestion for a  new title to be included in the collection just leave a comment.

  11. On the library catalogue it seems that although you have the ‘Kane Chronicles’ by Rick Riordan you have put them in the wrong order.

    The Correct Order is:
    – The Red Pyramid
    – The Throne of Fire
    – The Serpent’s Shadow

  12. dear Mr Bull, Brain Food by Doctor Karl is not in our library, it is a very informative book about food and nutrition. Its full of facts, both funny and serious.

  13. Hello,
    I would like to suggest two books known as:
    Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
    And..
    Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth

    These 2 books would fit great in the SSLIB and I think many students would enjoy reading them.

    regards
    Bill
