May Gibbs Memorial Library

The library has a large collection of fiction, non-fiction, electronic and reference resources. Resources are available to students during their lesson times and during the second half of lunch (Tuesday Years 3-4, Wednesday Years 5-6, Thursday Years K-2). School library resources are also loaned to classrooms to provide a range of materials for reading and research during the school year.

All students visit the library each week for a timetabled lesson. During these sessions students are provided with the opportunity to borrow books with a library bag, and to explore items within the library's collection. Session times also provide opportunities for students to engage in activities that aim to promote an enjoyment of literature and develop information skills.

At the start of each school year, the Year 6 school library monitors are trained to assist with the borrowing, returning and shelving of resources. This leadership opportunity gives them responsibility and teamwork skills.
