LJMU Library launches new reading corner

LJMU Library has developed a new children’s reading corner, providing access to a collection of children’s books. This new space provides a fun and relaxed reading area for use by students, staff, local teachers and school children.

The reading corner will support initial teacher trainees, early years practitioners and education students at LJMU studying within the School of Education. Students can use the space to familiarise themselves with the environment and the materials they may be using on placement, and they can also develop their knowledge and understanding of children’s literature. 

The collection includes early years picture books, children’s classics, and teenage fiction. It also has different themes which schools may be focusing on, such as animals and the environment. 

The children’s reading corner will be open to local teachers and school children to further strengthen our links within the local community, and of course it will also be available for use by all LJMU students and staff. 

To celebrate its opening LJMU Libraries held a launch event with Academics from the LJMU School of Education, LJMU Student Reading Ambassadors, and invited local primary school children along too. 

Watch LJMU Librarian Jackie Fealey explain more about the Reading Corner.

The reading corner is located on the ground floor of the Aldham Robarts Library on LJMU’s Mount Pleasant Campus.
