An inclusive, dynamic, information rich learning environment providing students and staff access to a range of resources 24/7.
CSPD 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
Holy Family's library supports a range of learning activities and is well utilised by our whole community, including preschoolers. Borrowing by parents and students is encouraged. The library has a selection of Indigenous Literature for students and their families to borrow and enjoy. Our collection is always growing!
Our library is a bright and welcoming space with comfy furniture for curling up to read, and a whole wheelbarrow of books that can be taken outside to enjoy in the fresh air and sunshine. We do our best to foster in students a love of reading.
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 provide help to students to 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.
