“At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold, that magic threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.”
The Library Resource Centre (LRC) is a very important part of Wallace Hall Academy. It is situated on the first floor of the Wallace Hall Academy main building, adjacent to the SMT offices, and is easily accessed from “The Street”. The current Library Assistant is Mrs Caroline Menzies. Mrs Menzies has been a member of staff at Wallace Hall Academy since 1994 and was appointed as School Library Assistant in March 2009.
The LRC is for the benefit of all the school community and offers a wide range of facilities and support. The LRC is a very popular area in the school with pupils and staff making good use of the excellent facilities. It is used during class time for reading, researching, teaching, project work and many other activities. The LRC is also used outwith normal school hours and access to the facilities at this time encourages pupils to work and learn independently, develop information-seeking and processing skills and enjoy reading for pleasure.
