The library has launched a series of maths-based competitions with a Rubik’s cube up for grabs as a prize. In addition to a range of books including 'Why do Buses come in Threes’, 'Cows in the Maze' and the 'Murderous Maths series', there are weekly Sudoku puzzles and a themed display.
To be in with a chance of winning the Rubik’s cube simply visit the display, solve the sum and put your answer in the competition prize draw box. A winner will be drawn at the end of week six.
Librarian Ms Adams said: ‘It is a not a subject that we have ever tackled before but I started leaving different level Sudokus around the library and they are going like hot cakes, so we thought we would expand that into a display on numeracy.
‘We have quite a lot of good general maths books. Some are at a higher level and related to things like the Fibonacci sequence and there are some more general things about maths in sport. Sai Stephenson did a very photogenic display. I hope that as many people as possible visit the library as, whatever year group you are in there will be some maths-related book that you will find interesting plus all students are eligible to take part in the Rubik’s Cube competition.’
