“Children who read for pleasure made more progress in maths, vocabulary and spelling between the ages of 10 and 16 than those who rarely read.” (Institute of Education research, September 2013)
We have an award-winning new library here at Carterton Community College! It was opened in September 2012 by Professor Sir Tim Brighouse and in 2013 we won the national School Library Design Award. Some of our book purchases were sponsored by a number of local organisations, as well as former students, staff and members of the local community.
We want our library to be a safe and welcoming space, open to students of all ages and abilities, where new things can be discovered and ideas can be explored.
If you would like any more information, you are welcome to contact Ms C Friedli
, Library Manager. You can also find us on Twitter @cartertoncc_lib – follow and find out what’s happening!
