Mrs Lopez is on hand to offer guidance with research skills and our library management system, known as Oliver, also offers a world of researched resources. Students can access Oliver once logged into their Department of Education portal.
Oliver opens a world of well researched and reliable information from your library including World Book Online and recommended websites and video links. Your federated search will also search other libraries in the area and is linked to the National Library of Australia. Once in Oliver students can renew, reserve and review our resources. They can check on any overdue loans and email library staff if needed. Our homepage is a very visual experience and we have embedded interesting links for easier student use.
There is also a library link app available to search your library using your mobile devices.
Besides being used frequently for class teaching we also host several programs running throughout the year, chess and debating competitions included. We house the uniform shop, printing facilities and many other student services.
Each year the library also hosts a visit from well respected Australian authors and illustrators. In 2017, Morris Gleitzman and Matthew Lin visited.
