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
The St Monica's library is located in the centre of our Learning Space. It is open for borrowing and returning daily, and quiet reading during lunch time. We are committed to fostering a love of reading in our students and helping build their literacy skills.
In order to encourage a sense of responsibility, students have the chance to become Library Monitors and help with the day-to-day running of the library. Our Library Monitors also help with setting up and running special library days such as book fairs and book character parades, and they mentor younger students for future roles.
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.
