Welcome To The EA Library Blog

The dynamic, diverse and dizzyingly active centre of the school.

Connecting you with information, events, activities, banter, support and more.

The library is literally a great place to be!

Mrs Toonen, our librarian, welcomes you to our library, which is a vital part of EA.

Our @royalsociety judging panel has judged! The pupils on the panel have shared, enjoyed, read, filmed and relished an amazing experience as the Elgin Academy judges for the 2019 Young People’s Book Prize.

Our pupils on the panel have now submitted both their votes and their film and are looking forward to viewing the live stream of the Young People’s Book Prize award ceremony on 13 November.

Watch their film here.

Our judging panel will watch the celebrations, which are being hosted by CBBC and Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell, live and join in to cheer the winner as they are announced. As well as the winner announcement, our pupils can enjoy a live science show (bangs and explosions included) and watch Lindsey put forward their questions to some of the shortlisted authors.

Mrs Toonen was The CILIPS Library and Information Professional of the Year 2018!
