Library

Students enjoying our library outdoor learning centre

Welcome to the Library

Our library has been changing. With the help of the P&C we purchased flexible furniture which makes it possible for teachers to modify the learning environment and allows students to create their own learning spaces for greater collaboration and communication with other students. We have different areas in the library, facilitating collaborative learning and quiet personal reading.

 

Borrowing

We love students to borrow books from our school library. Books should be kept in a safe place at home and carried to and from school in a library bag. Help your child to accept responsibility for remembering to return books on the right day and to care for books properly. 

Year 3 - 6 library days: Monday / Tuesday

Kindergarten - Year 2 library days: Thursday / Friday

Access to Oliver

If you or your child want to view the library catalogue at home, you can log on to the DEC Portal at http://student.det.nsw.edu.au. Your child can then log in with their DEC username and internet password and by selecting ‘Oliver library' can then access 'Oliver' our catalogue. The Premier's Reading Challenge can also be accessed in this way after 2 March.

Parents, carers and community members in the library

Parents, carers and community members are welcome to come to the library and browse in the collection. There is also the opportunity to help  with  borrowing books  for students, shelving and covering books. We look forward to seeing you sometime soon in the library. Please feel free to pop in. 

Library Monitors

Year 5 students are invited to become library monitors. They take on a leadership role and assist the students who come to the library at lunchtimes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Year 6 students are also welcome to be library monitors.
