Welcome to our library

The library is a warm and welcoming space at the heart of the school. The library has a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books which are added to every year to ensure the collection remains up-to-date. In addition, we have graphic novels, a well-being collection and a revision area with references copies of key study guides.

The library is staffed full-time and is open for students before and after school (Mon-Thurs) as well as during breaktime and at lunchtime for different year groups each day. The librarian is supported by a wonderful group of student librarians.

In addition to books, the library has computers and laptops for students to study and complete homework. We have two thriving book clubs as well as a very popular chess club. The library is also used for intervention sessions to support struggling readers.

    Mrs Bogle


    I have been the librarian at Cardinal Hume since Easter 2020. During the pandemic, I was able to spend a lot of time tidying and re-organising the library and improving the displays to make it the best possible space for students to read and work.  Since then, I have been able to add hundreds of new titles to the shelves – buying books is my favourite hobby so this is a perfect job for me!
    I am passionate about the power of reading to improve the academic outcomes and mental wellbeing of all students and I love to share this passion with all members of the school community.  The library here is a wonderful space where ALL are welcome.
