Our library provides a social space to meet, collaborate, research, learn, share, and relax. The staff work to develop a reading culture and raise the levels of information literacy across the school by leading students through processes which empower them to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers and skilful, efficient and discerning researchers.
The Oliver library management system, together with the ACEN digital library provide 24/7 access to a wealth of authentic, authoritative, age appropriate resources to specifically meet student and staff needs.
Resources include fiction and non-fiction books, ebooks, audiobooks, videos, journals, encyclopaedias, articles, websites, learning objects, CDs and DVDs.
The library was purpose-built as an open learning space for both students and teachers to ‘branch out’ in their learning. It provides a space for STEM activities, Think Tank, Chess and Language classes, before and after school care, parent information sessions and staff professional development.
The children enjoy the Book Week activities each year that include visiting authors and a book character parade. The children also enjoy weekly library lessons and book borrowing as well as taking part in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.
