The library at Christ’s College Finchley is very well stocked with thousands of nonfiction and
fiction books and it is a great place for students to read and do schoolwork. The library is
open during the whole school day and occasionally after school as well. The library Twitter
account (@ccflibrary) is updated regularly with information about new books and goings on.
I have lost my library card. How do I get a new one?
To get a new library card you just have to tell the librarian that you need a new card and she
will make you a new card as soon as possible. If you have any overdue books on your
account you will need to return those books before you are able to get a new card.
How many books can I borrow at a time?
You are allowed to borrow two books at a time, though exceptions can be made if you need
books for a school assignment.
How long am I allowed to borrow a book for?
You can borrow books for two weeks at a time but if you haven’t finished the book by the
due date you are allowed to renew the book for an additional two weeks.
Is the library open during break and lunch?
Yes, the library is open for borrowing books, reading, and doing schoolwork every break and
lunchtime unless there is a sign on the door stating otherwise.
I really want to read a book, but I can’t find it in the library. What should I do?
You should ask the librarian whether or not the book is in the library because she will know
where to find it if it is in the library. If the library does not carry the book you can request for
the book to be ordered!
How can I check whether a book is in my Accelerated Reader level?
The spines of the books in the library are clearly labelled with coloured stickers that
designate certain ranges of Accelerated Reader levels. Inside each of the Accelerated Reader
books are small labels with additional information including the specific level number. If you
want to check the level of a book from home or another library you can search the book’s title
