Belmont is strongly committed to promoting reading for pleasure. There is strong evidence to support the link between children who read for pleasure and success in later life.
We have recently launched a new online version of our school library catalogue via the Junior Librarian website.. The new system allows pupils, staff and parents to view our school library catalogue and pupils are encouraged to use this to help with research, write reviews about books they have read and search for new books that they may like to read.
The library catalogue includes over 3500 books as well as many thousands of approved websites. You can view the site by clicking on the image below. All pupils have been issued with a user name and password so that they access all the features available.
The first time you access the system it may ask you to install Microsoft Silverlight; please allow this to be downloaded and installed on your computer as the system cannot run without it.
There is also an App called ‘iMLS’, available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android & Windows Phone 7. This App can be freely downloaded by going to your App provider and searching ‘iMLS’.
Having the library accessible in this way and having parents engaged with reading will help to support our commitment to improving our student’s literacy standards.
We hope you find the new facility useful and welcome any feedback.
