The Pauline Edgar Library is situated at the very heart of the School, in one of Queenswood's most beautiful architectural spaces. Originally the swimming baths, the building is now home to an ever-expanding collection of 20,000 resources from Shakespearean criticism to the latest prize-winning fiction, together with a large range of popular, classic and subject-related films and documentaries.
Queenswood girls love to congregate here – whether they're lounging on the luxurious sofas, holding discussions round the large communal tables or revising in individual study bases.
The library staff organise an annual literary festival, and we welcome distinguished authors throughout the year to talk to pupils. Recent guests have included Lucy Worsley, Lauren Child, Clare Balding and Sarah Crossan.
