Hazlehead Academy Library currently has around 4000 books — despite being one of the largest schools in the City, we have the fewest books. In order to encourage reading, support the curriculum and develop literacy, a school library should have approximately 13 books per pupil, meaning that Hazlehead Academy should have more than 10,000 books on our shelves. We want to increase the library stock by at least 5000 books.
We are making applications to various grant giving organisations for funding and we are launching this campaign to raise further funds at a local level.
