Special Format

Special Format books are great books! They include pop-up books, lift the flap, large format, fold-out books and books such as The Alice Smith Yearbook.  These books are usually very expensive and easily damaged and to ensure that everyone has the longest opportunity to enjoy them (they get damaged easily and are difficult to carry due to size and weight) they can only be enjoyed in the library.  They are housed in separate boxes and they have a yellow sticker on the top right-hand corner of the front cover. As these are often very attractive books and good reference books teachers can borrow these books for a short time.
