The Wodehouse Library got out and about last week, popping up in different parts of the school.
With the aim of encouraging boys and staff to #readmore we gathered up a small part of the Wodehouse Library collection (based on recommendations from tutors, reading lists and popular loans) and took it into 4 different locations around the school campus.
Books could be borrowed, renewed, reserved and returned and it was heartening that so many browsers and borrowers stopped by. We had some good chats about what people are currently reading and what they’re looking forward to reading too. A lot of smiles as well (sometimes after an initial ‘huh?!’ moment to see us in unexpected places!), which was great.
Many thanks to everyone who supported us last week, to all the pupil librarians who helped out and happy reading to all our borrowers!
The Wodehouse Library is hitting the road this week!
With a carefully chosen selection of titles from the collection, you will find us in pop-up form at morning breaks and lunchtimes in various locations around campus:
- Tuesday = PE Centre
- Wednesday = Lord George Building
- Thursday = The Laboratory
- Friday = Christison Hall.
You will be able to borrow, renew, return and reserve items as normal. The pop-ups will have a member of library staff and some volunteers helping out so do come and take a look, say hello and choose a book.
A #luckydip in the Library!
From today in the Wodehouse Library you will find, as you walk down the steps from the door, a shelf with anonymous brown bags on it.
Already these have snagged the attention of several boys and it’s part of our #luckydip to get the @DulwichCollege community to #readmore
Here’s how it works:
Read the short extract from the book inside the bag
If you want to read more from the book itself, bring it to the Issue Desk and borrow it
And that’s it.
