Students at Ely College are being given the opportunity to become student librarians as part of a new learning scheme.
They will be able to issue and return books, serve in the school shop, organise shelves and help their peers.
The scheme aims to teach students new skills and prepare them for the world of work.
Over the years student librarians have gone on to get librarianships, working in the local public libraries.
Anne Shaw, Learning Resource Centre manager, said: “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the turnout for these new schemes. It is a pleasure to see the children thrive and enjoy the sessions, indicating why they have been so popular.
