The library is a welcoming place for choosing books, independent study, quiet reading and research.
There is a regularly updated range of fiction and non-fiction which reflects the expansion of children’s and young adult fiction. New titles and classic fiction can be borrowed and reserved as well as a range of non-fiction for both study and leisure interests.
Students and staff can be issued with 2 books for up to 2 weeks. Students can also suggest titles they’d like the library to purchase by filling out a request card or speaking with the librarians.
The library promotes reading for pleasure with regular displays, student competitions and activities. Students can also loan revision guides and access reference books for use in the library.

Author Visits and Book Activities
Authors are regularly invited into school to work with students to promote reading, writing and creativity. The library works in association with World Book Day Ltd, the School Library Association, Juniper Education, Book Trust and many other partners to provide a range of activities and reading opportunities for students.
We invite students in years 8 + to assist in the library as Student Librarians, volunteering once a week. Student Librarians help with tidying shelves, preparing books for cataloguing, creating displays and helping to shelve books. We also invite students completing their Duke of Edinburgh Award to volunteer within the Library as part of their Award. Our Library can be extremely busy, so student involvement is much appreciated and helps both students and staff across the school.
Moulsham High School encourage all students to join Essex Libraries to access a wide range of free books, e-books, comics and magazines, audio-books and revision guides.
The library holds regular Book Groups and works in association with World Book Day, the School Library Association, Book Trust and other partners to provide a range of activities and reading opportunities for students.
The annual Bridge Academy Trust Book Awards launched in 2022 and is an opportunity for Moulsham students to read a selection of new books, meet students from other secondary schools within our Trust, and vote for the winner of 'Best Book'.
