Monmouth School Boys’ Prep Library is in the heart of the school on the ground floor. It is a welcoming and busy environment where boys may freely come to browse, search for information or choose a new book.
Boys recommend books to each other by word of mouth or by means of a list displayed on the library wall. The school responds to current ‘crazes’ by purchasing multiple copies of popular books from authors such as Anthony Horowitz (the Alex Rider series), Philip Pullman (Dark Materials) and Lemony Snicket (A Series of Unfortunate Events). As well as the popular classics, new books are purchased termly such as J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings).
