BVC Bookworms celebrate World Book Day.

Students across the school took up the challenge to list their favourite books as part of the BVC World Book Day celebrations – with lists plastered over classroom doors as proof.

Librarian Mrs Lynn set the challenge to come up with the lists as part of the BVC inter-college championships. College points were awarded for the best displayed (JMI & SMC), most diverse (SRB/DL) and longest list (SKN).

Students were also able to take advantage of special free World Book Day books from the likes of Michael Bond, Clare Balding, Tom Fletcher, Benjamin Zephaniah, Frances Hardinge and John Green. Heffers of Cambridge supplied the books.

Ann Lynn, BVC Librarian, said:”It was great to see our lunchtime bookstall so busy! Students couldn’t decide which book to take and some ended up in heated arguments over which were the best.

“We have also launched a new reading list in the Library with the longlist of Carnegie books now available and a brand new selection of brilliant reference books.”
