Reading Cloud provides primary schools with a simple and easy to use platform to help with the day to day running of their school library. The system supports librarians, pupils and staff across the school to complete the day to day tasks involved in everyday library management, as well as a system to encourage reading from a young age.
Let us take care of the day to day running of your library
With potentially thousands of books to keep track of, you need a system to help simplify the administration associated with running your library. With Reading Cloud, librarians simply scan the ISBN barcode and the system does the rest. Reading Cloud then automatically adds information such as the title, author, synopsis and images making the whole process seamless and efficient. Librarians can track and trace resources easily, managing the books leaving and being returned to the library, helping to inform purchasing decisions for popular books and reduce stock loss.
Encourage reading from a young age
A love for reading starts at a young age - primary school is a key time to encourage reading for pleasure. Features like "Who's Next", suggested reading lists, ‘Book of the week’ and meet the author video clips within Reading Cloud help engage primary school children in developing their own preference in genre and writing style, encouraging them to continue reading and ultimately improve their reading grades.
Engage parents in their child’s reading
Encouraging children to read at home can be a challenge, but parents and guardians can play a huge role in developing a child’s love for reading. With access to the Reading Cloud app at home they can monitor their child’s reading progress at school and assist with writing and filming book reviews.
Some of our most reluctant readers are now engaged and I arrived at school the other morning to find one of our boys reading a book while he waited for the building to open! We would thoroughly recommend the system to any school, money well spent!
