The school library is a modern automated resource centre with many books and magazines available.
Use of the library is integral to the whole school curriculum and its resources are used by classes and individual students from Prep through to Grade 6. It is an area within the school that provides enrichment by building on learning across a wide variety of areas. This facility is also used for homework classes onThursday’s after school.
Borrowing from the LibraryBorrowing books for home reading is encouraged. Children in years Prep to 2 may borrow one book, while children in years 3 to 6 may borrow three books at any one time. The borrowing period is for two weeks.
When borrowing library books the children are required to provide a library bag . This may be a plastic or a cloth bag. (Library bags can be purchased from the school office). Each bag should have the child’s name and grade clearly labeled. Parents of young children are encouraged to bring their children to the library on a daily basis to change their books.
Borrowing time is from 8.35 a.m. to 8.45 a.m. and for a limited time after school most days.
ComputersThere is a large number of networked computers available in the library that are used by staff and students for a variety of purposes.
Scholastic Book ClubBook Club gives children the opportunity to purchase books of high interest at reduced prices. Notices are sent home approximately every month. The buying of these books is strictly optional. It is an easy way of building up a stock of books that parents may read to the child or that children may read themselves. Children and parents can also purchase books from our Book Fair, which takes place in the library.
