The Learning Centre has thousands of books to entertain, inform and inspire. Students do not need a library card to borrow up to 10 books for three weeks. Other resources such as magazines and equipment have different loan periods. Books can be renewed for a further three weeks.
Our catalogue recently expanded to include ebooks and audiobooks with their own digital loan system.
There are a large range of student textbooks that are not for loan, these however can be scanned, photographed or photocopied. Resources can be found by searching the library database “SmartSuite”
There is a dedicated Reading Room for quiet reading and Year 11 and 12 students can use the Senior Study Room for quiet study.
If you are interested in accessing Ebooks as a parent, you can apply here.
