Stu­dents pass li­brary train­ing

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - SCHOOL NEWS -

An­nan Academy is cel­e­brat­ing the suc­cess of 11 pupils from across the school classes who have suc­ceeded in com­plet­ing their li­brary as­sis­tant train­ing.

Over six months they have learned what it takes to run the li­brary from clas­si­fi­ca­tion to pro­cess­ing at the desk and from choos­ing new books and pre­par­ing them for loans, as well as cus­tomer ser­vice skills.

Staff have been de­lighted with how the tal­ented pupils have shown com­mit­ment, al­ways been on time for their weekly shifts and their in­cred­i­ble imag­i­na­tions which led to them cre­at­ing an amaz­ing Harry Pot­ter themed stair­case dis­play.

Third year pupils Katie Mor­ri­son and Hay­den Shaw went one step fur­ther. As re­turn­ing li­brary as­sis­tants they com­pleted a whole dif­fer­ent skill set and achieved stu­dent li­brar­ian sta­tus through their su­per­vi­sion and train­ing of the younger as­sis­tants and their abil­ity to solely man­age the desk.
