It takes a range of the most elementary skills required to use a library effectively and presents them as lively and engaging teaching and learning activities in a worksheet format. Topics covered include: what libraries are for; how they are typically set out; what you can find in a library; library rules; shelving systems; how catalogues work; the reference section; knowing what authors and titles are; understanding the difference between fiction and non-fiction; and much more. A teachers' section at the start explains each activity, providing information on its purpose and the skills it can help to develop. Contains over 50 photocopiable pages.
