Welcome to the HDHS Library
The library can be accessed by students to loan out books during the following times Monday to Friday:
The HDHS school library contributes to educational attainment and skills for life by providing a welcoming and well-organised environment in which HDHS staff can teach, HDHS pupils can learn and reading for pleasure and purpose can be enjoyed by all. The HDHS Library in KZ is a vibrant hub that enhances and supports learning across the curriculum. It offers a welcoming environment for HDHS students who are looking for a place to read, relax and retreat momentarily from the rigours of the school day.
Our student librarians work closely with the HDHS team to promote a love of reading. They are trained to use the library systems and support with loaning out books, stocking shelves and keeping the library area presentable.
