Group status: We are having our first Carnegie meeting of 2017 on friday!

The Duke of Devonshire Library

We are a group of about 30 students from Years 7-10 who love (good!) books. Most of us have shadowed the Carnegie Medal before but for some of the Year 7s, this is the first time. Exciting! We have two librarians in this group as well as some teachers and everybody loves discussing the books and biscuit crumbs are flying during our heated discussions. Just before the winner is announced, we will be meeting up with other shadowing groups for an afternoon of fun and cakes. Happy shadowing, everyone!
