teacher reading to students in the library

Off to the library 1,2,3.....

We have a well resourced library that is full of quality fiction and non-fiction books. The children visit the library once a week with their class. They enjoy a story, learn about a library as well as book knowledge such as author and illustrator.


The children then choose a book to take home for the week.


There is great value in reading to your child each day and our library books can introduce your child to a wide variety of literature.


When reading to your child, encourage them to look at the pictures and tell you what they see.


Ask them questions, get them to predict what's going to happen or just sit and enjoy the story together.

Every child has a John Brotchie library bag. Each week you return your book and borrow another.


Our library is a highlight for the children's week. It is also a great way to get ready for school.

Parent library

We also have a large selection of parent reference books available to borrow.


Some of the topics covered are parenting, child development, behaviour management, healthy cooking ideas and school readiness. if you would like to borrow a book please see Joanne in the office.
