Library

 

Junior Librarian is a web-based library system designed specifically for schools, which allows pupils and teachers to borrow and return books and resources from the school library.

 

Using a special barcode reader, serial code stickers and individual logons, Junior Librarian allows users to search for, reserve and review books online, at home and in school.

 

It can be accessed from from any computer with an internet connection, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or other smartphone or tablet, through each child's individual logon.

 

There are three parts to Junior Librarian:

  • Junior Librarian.net – this is the main library tool.
  • Reading Cloud.net – this is the social media aspect of the site.
  • iMLS App – this app combines both of the above and is very useful for parents/carers.

 

Download the Android, iPhone, Ipad or iPod App.
