environment that aims to help and support both our Students and Staff. We have
engaged our students in a wonderful wide reading program and have seen an
increase in books borrowed and read this year.
Our Library hours are as follows:
Library Lending Rules and Procedures
library book (maximum of four) can be borrowed for a 2 week period (Year
7’s have a 2 book limit for first semester). Once this 2 week period has ended
a student can either return the library book, or extend their loan for an
additional 2 weeks. This extension can be done by logging into an OPAC in the
school library, logging into "Oliver" (our library system) on the
school network and extending the resource themselves, or by seeing one of our

Queensland State Schools eBooks Digital Library for students and teachers.
Encouraging students to read as often as possible, not only to learn but also
for enjoyment, is a critical element of improving literacy for all students.
Our eBooks Digital Library will use the popular Overdrive platform and provide
students with access to hundreds of online books to support their learning and
love of reading. Simply download the Overdrive app on your phone or tablet,
search for the Education Queensland Library and log in with your MIS ID.
to our excellent lending rates, students sometimes forget to return their books
on time. Our overdue process aims to inform both students and parents to keep
you in the loop. The process is as follows:
An email is sent to student and parent on the day
after the book is overdue.
A notice is placed in student notices the Monday
of the week following.
A second email reminder email is sent on the
fifth overdue day.
On the third week of being overdue the book will
be classed as lost, and parents will be sent an invoice.
If the book is found and returned to the library,
we will credit the invoice.
Note: If your child is certain they have returned the
book to the library, please let us know and we will check the shelves for the
book to see if it has been returned. If the book is still classed as
missing, the invoice will remain. If at any time the book is located within the
library or by the student, the amount paid for the book by the parent will
be credited back to their school account.
