Room 29 houses a small but perfectly formed library which holds a wide range of fiction for young and older teenagers. We have many new releases, popular series and well-loved classics.


We have many popular horror series: Twilight, Vampire Diaries and Darren Shan’s Vampire’s Assistant.


We have diaries galore: The Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries and the I’m not a Loser series.


For comedy lovers we have the Roald Dahl Funny Prize shortlist for the last two years which includes Pants are not Enough, Goblins and Dark Lord.

Fabulous authors

We have many books by well-loved authors: Jacqueline Wilson, J.K.Rowling, Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton, David Walliams, Micheal Morpurgo, Susanne Collins and Malorie Blackman, to name but a few.

The library is open for borrowing and reading every morning registration. It is a quiet room so it is also a good place for doing homework. Once you sign a book out, you can enjoy it at your leisure and return it when you have finished. We only ask that you take good care of it. Happy reading…
