Haslingfield School have introduced a Junior Librarian System to allow children to choose their books from the school library and scan them in and out. The children are able to borrow two books a week and they need to be returned after seven days. If the children have not finished their books they can renew them at the next library session. The children are also able to reserve one book a week.

In addition, there is an online version of our school ‘junior librarian’ system.   This system allows students, staff and parents to view our school library catalogue online, and 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. The children can reserve books that they would like to read too and collect in school on their next library session.


The library catalogue, searchable online, includes over 4000 books and audio-visual resources as well as many thousands of approved websites.  You can access the system via

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’. This enables you access to the library system from your phone or tablet and will enable your child to video their book reviews and scan books that the children may like to see in our library to add to our wish list.


Having the library accessible in this way and having parents engaged with reading will help to support our commitment to improving our student’s literacy standards. The school is strongly committed to promoting reading for pleasure.
