The Importance of Reading

Reading boosts imagination and creativity, is essential for success, and gives us a better understanding of the world around us.  The more you read, the more you understand.

How to Borrow a Book

Borrowing a book from the library is easy.  Just come along to the library at morning break or lunch break.  Select a book from our well-stocked shelves.  Ask for help from the School Librarian if you need help choosing.  A team of School Librarians will always be on hand to help as well.  Take your book to the counter and it will be issued to you for two weeks.  The date it is due back will be stamped inside the book.  You can take out up to two books.

 You will also be given a Book Review Bookmark to complete and return with the book, together with a Library Reward Card which will be stamped every time you return a book.  When you have read six books from the library and completed the Book Review Bookmark for each one you will be asked to attend a Rewards Lunch.
