The Library Resource Centre has an extensive collection of books, computer programs, books with CD's, a large dictionary collection in a wide range of languages, board games, fiction and non-fiction books and graphic novels. The library has two Inquiry Terminals and desktops which students can use to access the Internet and complete school work.
One teacher-librarian and two part-time teacher-aide staff the library. All classes attend regular library sessions, which are planned by the teacher-librarian and teachers. These sessions help develop information literacy skills such as defining, locating, selecting and translating information, and support the units students are working on in class.
The library is open to staff and students before school from 8.15am and during lunchtimes. All classes have regular borrowing times.
As a general rule, students may borrow three books for two weeks.
Of course, students may return and borrow books as many times as they require during the week.
Students may borrow additional items for specific projects. Loans may be extended, if necessary, and books may be borrowed for all holidays except the six-week Christmas break.
The library throughout the year hosts guest authors which is a wonderfully rewarding experience for our students.
