About us

 

'A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life' - Henry Ward Beecher

The library is central to the teaching and learning programme of All Saints' College.

We promote the development of information literacy across the curriculum to enable our students to be lifelong learners in an ever changing world.

We do this by providing both hardcopy and virtual resources to support the curriculum.

We promote a culture of reading across the College through a varied collection of print fiction and non-fiction books as well as a growing collection of audio books and graphic novels. Our annual Literature Festival is a celebration of reading in all its forms.
