As a teacher in Moray you have access to a ticket from your local library. You can borrow materials to support the reading initiatives and curriculum activities in your classroom.
Friendly and supportive staff will be on hand to give you advice on suitable material. In the rural areas, fortnightly visits from the mobile library can be arranged if required.
You will receive an invitation to visit your local library with your class at least once a year. Where this is not possible in the rural areas the Librarian will offer to visit you.
We organise an annual programme of visits by popular and entertaining authors which take place in different libraries in Moray. We invite classes to join us in these sessions trying to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate.
The libraries children’s & young people’s website has links to school websites & e-boards for homework support.
Where it is practicable, we are keen to display the work of your pupils in our libraries.
