St Margaret’s Berwick Grammar has three purpose-built libraries: Junior School, Senior Girls and Senior Boys. The resources in each are available to all students.
We are proud of our Junior School library, which is situated in the very heart of the campus. It is a well-stocked Library of up-to-date fiction and non-fiction books, CDs, MP3 audiobooks, picture books, magazines, newspapers, graphic novels, and dyslexia-friendly publications.
Instilling a love for reading from an early age
Students are encouraged to browse, select and borrow from the picture book, fiction and non-fiction sections and to develop an interest in reading a variety of materials. Students from Prep – Year 6 have a weekly library session. The focus of the program in the early years is to show children how to use the library and to encourage students to select and borrow appropriate books and to develop a love of books and reading.
The Library staff offer pupils help with research and fiction choices. In Years 3-6 the literature program is extended to include more sustained reading sessions, library and research skills. Throughout the year the Library hosts various events designed to encourage a love of books and reading.
Our Library is open for all students to use
