Library Website - http://libraryk.bne.catholic.edu.au/oliver/libraryHome.do
Our Library is staffed by a qualified Teacher-Librarian and School Officer two days per week.
The Teacher Librarian is responsible for curating and managing the collection that meets the diverse needs of our students. For students to view themselves as 'readers' can make all the difference to their learning journey.
Part of the challenge is to keep the print collection relevant in a digital age. Screen time can overshadow the practice of reading a book for pleasure. Our one point of difference in the library is still our print collection and we promote that each day.
Borrowing occurs weekly. Students are encouraged to bring a library bag, available through the office. The Library is open before school and during lunch breaks.
The Teacher Librarian helps run literature circles with the students , facilitates Hooked on Books book club, organises Children's Bookweek, the Literature Festival, reading incentive schemes and Reader's Cup each year .
The Teacher Librarian assists teachers in the planning of exciting units of work that align with the Australian Curriculum.
