the man who never reads lives only once.” George RR Martin
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” Lemony Snicket
We have very friendly and helpful staff in the library who love to chat to students about what books they like. As well as class borrowing times, the library is open most lunch breaks, before school from 8:30am and after school until 3:30pm for students to return and borrow books.

In Years 4-6, one of the books borrowed each week/fortnight should be a Lexile book.
Students are tested during Year 3 or 4 to find their reading level, using a computer program designed by Scholastic Australia. This level is a number called their Lexile level. More information can be found on the Scholastic Australia website Lexile levels.
Scholastic Australia Book Club catalogues are sent home about 8 times per year. You can buy books for your child and any money spent earns rewards for the school to buy more resources for the school Library.
Due dates of book club will be published in the school newsletter. If you miss the deadline, you are still able to order but will be charged for the postage and handling for it to be delivered to your home.
Bec Watkins in the library is the Book Club coordinator.
