Access to Libraries
Families who have a Cornwall Library card can continue to access reading material by downloading the BorrowBox app (for free) and registering using their library card number (to gain access to free eBooks and eAudiobooks). RBDigital is also available (for free) by registering in the same way (to access a range of eComics, including Marvel and Disney). Visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/library.
If you need a library card, the school can help you get registered. Email Mrs Tout for details.
We are looking forward to a time when children can choose their own books in school. In the meantime, you are able to access Junior Librarian online: https://u001999.microlibrarian.net to check your books, search for books or do a review. Log in details were emailed out last year. If you need a reminder, just email KathyTout@stratton.cornwall.sch.uk.
Also, this is our Reading Cloud page https://readingcloud.net
Log in with the same details to personalise your library page. If you submit a review we can publish it on this page.
