The Library at IVC is a friendly hub with around 15,000 resources including DVDs, CDs, magazines, careers information, manga and graphic novels. The Library is open during school hours, and this year Librarian Judith Brown is busy planning special events and activities to encourage a vibrant reading community.
Craft in the Library
The Library opened to the local community on 3 occasions for special craft and upcycling events that coincided with the Farmer’s Market.
This was an excellent opportunity for people to come and be inspired by the fantastic craft books in the Library whilst also stocking up on supplies. Visitors were able to buy materials for crafts and art projects from the Scrapstore which offered a wide variety of materials at very reasonable prices. It was an opportunity to share ideas, supplies and upcycling knowledge. For those looking for inspiration there was a fantastic selection of arts and crafts books to browse.
Scrapstore in the Library was supported by the Parents, Staff and Friends Association. If you would like to find out more or get involved with the PSFA, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Did you know?
The Library is home to the College archive which holds material dating back to the 1920s (and maybe even the odd 19th century item). A selection of artefacts and information was available at the special 75th Anniversary exhibition which ran at the College from September 2014 to February 2015. There is now a new exhibition called “Hidden Gems” featuring different, unseen items from the archive.
