We are fortunate to have a beautiful, well-stocked library at our school, as well as a part-time librarian. Our library is a modern, comfortable environment that students love to visit to read, learn, create, play games, meet friends and relax. We have a selection of over 8000 books including fiction, non-fiction, picture books, graphic novels and dyslexia friendly books.
The library app is maintained for students to explore the collection and access reliable online digital content curated for inquiry learning.
Scholastic Lucky Book Club brochures come out twice a term. Purchases collect points for the library, which are used to acquire new books to boost our collection. You can pay online or with cash at the office.

The library supports our annual Book Week celebration with author visits, competitions, book character parade, and Grandparents day. This is also our main library fundraiser.
The library provides leadership opportunities for Year 6 students through the student librarian programme. Students are trained to manage the library during lunchtimes and assist with various library tasks. They are role models, creating a welcoming environment and promoting reading to their peers.
