Dear Parents/Carers

We are excited to tell you about our online support for our school library catalogue.  The new system allows children, staff and parents to view our school library catalogue online. Children are encouraged to use this to help with research, to write reviews about books they have read, and search for new books that they may like to read.

Our library catalogue, now searchable online, includes over 5000 books and audio-visual resources as well as many thousands of approved websites.

The first time you access the system it may ask you to install Microsoft Silverlight; please allow this to be downloaded and installed on your computer as the system cannot run without it.

There is also an App called ‘iMLS’, available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android & Windows Phone 7.  This App can be freely downloaded by going to your App provider and searching ‘iMLS’.

We hope that our library will be easily accessible for both children and our parents and carers. The online catalogue will support our commitment to improving children’s literacy standards. Your child should have received their login details for the new system (4 digit code) and the password is BirkbyJ. If you would like to know what these are so that you can track their borrowing history, and perhaps help them to choose their next read, please feel free to contact Mrs Ahmad (Learning Mentor) in school.

Our school is strongly committed to promoting reading for pleasure.  We know that children who enjoy reading will make good progress throughout their school life. We hope that you find our new library catalogue useful.
