A class library is a collection of books kept in the classroom and used for extensive reading, not generally for classroom activities.
A classroom library can include readers, the teacher's own books, and books lent by learners.
In the classroom
Ways to encourage learners to use a class library include practising sub-skills such as guessing meaning from context, guiding learners in their selection of material, and giving learners the opportunity to share their thoughts and reactions to books through discussions and mini-presentations.
