Our library, known as the Irene McCormack Centre or IMC, is the hub of research, inspiration and learning. It is open daily, with extended hours on Monday and Tuesday for SEEK, our homework club. The importance and love of reading is promoted through Book Week, the Premier’s Reading Challenge and readings from visiting authors. The IMC is divided into six different zones:

  • Reading
  • Investigation
  • Exploration
  • Collaboration
  • Creation
  • Quiet Study

Our library provides a social space to meet, collaborate, research, learn, share, and relax. The staff work to develop a reading culture and raise the levels of information literacy across the school by leading students through processes which empower them to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers and skillful, efficient and discerning researchers.

The Oliver library management system, together with the ACEN digital library provide 24/7 access to a wealth of authentic, authoritative, age appropriate resources to specifically meet student and staff needs.

Resources include fiction and non-fiction books, ebooks, audiobooks, videos, journals, encyclopaedias, articles, websites, learning objects, CDs and DVDs.
