2024 Vice Captains

Charlie Kerr

Charlie Kerr - Highly recommends The Reacher Series: Lee Child

“The series provides a thrilling adventure for young men, as the stories create a connection through loyalty and determination, whilst modelling the actions of a man within his community. Overall, a great series full of action and entertainment.” 

Ewan McCarthy

Ewan McCarthy - Highly recommends the Percy Jackon series

"I loved reading at a young age and these books were always the first ones I went to. These books are super entertaining and have great storylines, showing the true actions of a hero, and someone to look up to."

Get yourself into the library to check out the amazing talent of author Rick Riordan.  We have over 30 books written by him, in our library, for your reading enjoyment.  If you love to escape reality into a fantasy world then his books are a great choice for you.


Joseph Grigson

Joseph Grigson - Highly recommends Johnathon Thurston

"I recommend reading the JT novel as his story is truly inspiring. He was told he was too skinny, too slow and now look what he has done. Thurston's journey showcases the power of self-belief and hard work, inspiring young audiences to chase their dreams regardless of initial setbacks."
