Four new books on ‘The Planet We Share’

The Newhaven School Library Blog by Carole, the Librarian

This blog shares my love of books, stories and information. I’ll keep you up to date with new books and dates to celebrate. I’ll tell you more about the Newhaven libraries and book collections at Gardens, Kings Park, NEST and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital School Room.

If you’d like my help choosing books drop in to see me when I am in your library. Look out for new dates and times in 2021. Or you can email me at
