Group status: Meet every Weds lunchtime with Mrs M, Mrs G & Vanessa RBK Youth Librarian

Book Munchers

Welcoming new students to the group. See you on Wednesday in the Library for our Lunchtime Reading. This year we are going to have 2 shared meetings with our neighbouring Carnegie Shadowers at Southborough Boys School. We are so lucky to have support from our Kingston Libraries' Youth Librarian, who supplements our book stock. Will also try and choose our top 10 and celebrate 80 years of Carnegie Medal winners.
