Year 3's Library Visit

17th February 2017

Yesterday, Year 3 were lucky enough to visit the William Brown Liverpool library in the town centre. With all of our new and exciting topics to study this year we wanted to find out how to research them at home and we thought that the library was the best place to start.

When we arrived we couldn’t believe how big the building was and how high the ceiling was above all of the different floors! Susan, a librarian, greeted us and took one group on their special tour of the library while the other group had the opportunity to devour all of their favourite books in the children’s section of the library. This section was filled with books by our favourite authors like Roald Dahl and David Walliams and we spent our time reading independently, to each other and our teachers and even to a little boy who had come to visit the library during half term with his mum!

On the tour we visited each section of the library in turn, learning lots of new facts as we went round. Did you know that it cost £50 million to build the library? It also houses around half a million books! We loved the Picton Reading Room because it looked like the library from Beauty and the Beast. We also really enjoyed going right to the top of the library, onto the lookout point because we could see across the whole city!

As part of our day, we received our own library cards that can be used in libraries across Liverpool, we can take up to 14 books out at a time and keep them for 3 weeks! We would recommend visiting the library to anyone who loves to read or who wants to research an exciting topic like us.
