The Library is known as the LRC – Learning Resource Centre.
 
Opening Times: The LRC is open Monday to Thursday from 8.00 am until 3.00pm. We are closed on Friday.

We open before school for Star Readers Club and at 2nd Break when the students can come and read, play games or draw and colour in. We are closed 1st break.
Students who attend Star Readers Club sign in on the iPad.  After every 25 visits they are presented with a Certificate and choose a book from our Star Readers Club Rewards. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we have a “Guest Reader” who is a member of staff.
All classes come to the LRC to borrow at a specific time during the week.  Students are permitted to borrow up to 2 books and keep them for 2 weeks.  They are shown where the different sections of the Library are.  They are also taught how to use the Dewey Decimal System so they are able to locate the books on a specific subject. 
Junior Fiction Books are located in low boxes, while Easy Fiction, Fiction, Graphic Novels, Hard Fiction and Non Fiction sections are located on shelves.  We have introduced a Junior Non Fiction Section to cater for the increasing evidence of younger students wishing to explore topics of interest.
Our building is wireless, therefore, students have the opportunity to use their laptops or iPads while sitting at our tables or on our funky furniture. Three Opac terminals make for easy access of information relating to available resources.
The large wall displays student work and is also used for displaying New Resources for borrowing, Star Reader Rewards and displays for Cultural Days.
In keeping with the open plan, coupled with smaller working areas, the whole aspect of the LRC has a flowing feel.
The Runcorn Heights Community is welcome to become members of the LRC and enjoy the wonderful environment that our students enjoy. We are happy for Parents to have their own borrower barcode.

Our Philosophy is: “make the LRC better because you have been here.”
Please come and say “Hello”.
