An inclusive, dynamic, information rich learning environment providing students and staff access to a range of resources 24/7.
CSDP SCHOOL LIBRARIES ARE PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL PLACES OF INQUIRY AND READING.
They provide access to a range of resources that help students on their Learning journey and help inspire purposeful learning.
Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learner dispositions and capabilities to cultivate a culture of curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.
OUR PHYSICAL LIBRARY
At St Patrick's, the library plays an integral part in teaching and learning. Our carefully designed library forms part of our Learning Hub and is open to all students daily. The library includes an outside learning area.
Children enjoy borrowing sessions with their teacher each week, where they are encouraged to borrow appropriate books for their age and their reading ability.
All children are encouraged to participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge each year and our library resources support this.
Teacher Librarians are on hand to assist students with locating quality information from relatable sources and ensure it is used in an ethical manner. All library staff have a great passion for literature and are on hand to help students find their next ‘great read’.
Students have access to the eLibrary - the digital gateway to a range of quality online resources that encourage and enhance reading and support inquiry learning.
The virtual library gives access to an electronic bookshelf and database access for students and staff.
