Upon joining the school, all students are automatically enrolled as members of the Library and can borrow up to three resources at a time for a period of two weeks.  All resources within the Library are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that they reflect the academic and leisure needs of the whole school community.

Student Involvement

Students are actively encouraged to use the library, make book recommendations and to submit book reviews via the Librarian+ software. 

The Library also invites students from Years 8 to 11 to volunteer as Student Librarians, once a week.  Student Librarians assist with displays, preparing books for cataloguing, shelving and are also consulted in relation to the selection of stock.   

Librarian + (Library Computer System)

The Library currently uses Librarian+ software by Libresoft to manage student loans and library stock.  Log-in details for this system are normally given to students at the start of each academic year or upon joining the school.

Instructions on using Librarian + can be found on the Library’s Moodle pages.
