Library Introduction

Lampton School Library has been completely redeveloped and refurbished in recent years. We have thousands of new books, an online Library Catalogue and new stock for most school subjects. We run a full programme of reading promotion events, and we teach research skills sessions to pupils in all years.

Any student or member of staff is automatically a member of the Library. To borrow, just come to the Library and give us your name.

You may borrow up to three items at a time, and the standard loan period is two weeks. Loans can be renewed a maximum of two times (as long as they have not been reserved by someone else).

Library CatalogueEnter some simple search terms, e.g. cognitive psychology, stephenie meyer or historical fiction.

When you’ve found what you want, use the classification number provided (e.g. 305.1) to find the item on the Library shelves.

If you log in to the Catalogue, you may also:

  • renew your loans
  • reserve items that are on loan
  • see a list of all your past loans.
