The library caters for all students, providing a wide range of literature, audio-visual aids and kits. A “library bag” is required for borrowing.
Opening times for all children
Two (2) books may be borrowed at any time except for Prep and Year 1 children who may borrow one (1) book at a time. Other resources such as posters, DVDs and computer programs may be used in the library but are not available for borrowing.
All books borrowed should be cared for. Reimbursement is sought from parents for replacement of damaged or lost books.
The Book Buddies program has been designed to encourage children to read books or have books read to them. Older students visit the library and read to younger students, or students come and read a book to themselves. Attendance is recorded in a student passport and certificates and prizes are provided as added incentive for students to be involved.
Children are given the opportunity of participating in Book Club approximately eight times a year. Order forms are issued to pupils approximately a week prior to collection day. Every care is taken with ordering but no responsibility is taken by the school. The book company is notified of errors and attends to them. Late orders may not be accepted.
A Book Fair is held each year. This coincides with Children’s Book Week. Parents will be advised of the dates on which this is to be held. Cash payments for the correct amount are preferred. If payment is by cheque please make the cheque payable to Scholastic Australia.
