Borrowing

Our Resource Centre is fully automated. Ten terminals are available for student searches.

  • Prep students have their own library and also visit the Resource Centre throughout the year.
  • Year 1 - borrowing period is one week.
  • Years 2-6 - borrowing period is two weeks.

Books may be changed as often as desired; daily, if borrowers wish. The borrowing period may be extended if required. It is preferred that children use a water proof library bag which helps keep books clean, dry and in good condition while in their care. Waterproof library bags may be purchased from the Tuckshop.
