School Leavers: Return of Library Books

School leavers and library books

All S6 pupils and S4 or S5 pupils who are leaving school at the end of this term are reminded to return all school library books before their last day.

If pupils are not sure whether they have any items on loan, they can check with Miss Wilson in the school library.  Items can either be returned to the school or to the local East Lothian public library if that is an easier option.

Thank you for supporting your school library in this endeavour to recover all books from school leavers.
