“Library. It's where we lock up all those books before they start giving kids ideas," I said solemnly. "Very dangerous place to be.”
We have two very dangerous places, a library for each campus, Marmara and Hisar. Both libraries have books, DVD’s and electronic books and databases to encourage our students develop a love for reading and the necessary information literacy skills for 21st century learning. We try not to lock up the books – we encourage all of our school community to borrow and enjoy them.
All primary classes are scheduled for weekly library visits with either their homeroom teacher or one of the librarians. Secondary classes often visit with class teachers. We have unlimited borrowing for our secondary students and a range of borrowing privileges for primary students depending on their grade level.
The library at Marmara is open before school, morning breaks and lunchtimes for students to come and read or study. All the families of our students are welcome to join our library. Our collection caters for young children through to adults. We have unlimited borrowing for parents.
The library at Hisar is open mornings, break and lunch time to drop books off and open on library days for book issues. The collection here is more suited to the age of our Hisar students 3 – 9 year olds.
Our electronic books, databases and catalogue are available to our students at any time.
Our library team is led by Mrs. Bond, Teacher Librarian and includes Mrs. Lindsey Paze, Hisar Librarian.
