LRC Study Desks

Welcome to the Learning Resource Centre (LRC).

We aim to provide resources for learning and teaching, and to foster a love of reading.

LRC Staff: Library Asistant, Mrs Brown (09:30-13:30)

Mrs Brown

I have lots of favourite books. I read Catch 22 by Joseph Heller when I was at High School and it is still one of my top ten. I am passionate about the power of books to transform lives. I graduated with a Degree in Librarianship and Information Studies in 1994, and with an Honours Degree in English Literature in 2017.
