The school has a well-stocked purpose built library with almost 20,000 volumes comprising fiction and non-fiction with a strong emphasis on social studies and the sciences. There are also 388 CD-ROMS, 416 videos, 50 audio cassettes, periodicals for both pupils and teachers, and newspapers. The library is fully computerized and connected to the internet. All classes have one library period a week in which they are taught library skills. These include borrowing procedures and the use of catalogues and reference volumes and fun activities to stimulate the pupils’ interest in using the library. All the library book holdings are computerized and bar codes scanned when a book is being borrowed or returned. Children can borrow three books at a time and up to four over weekends. Books must be returned or renewed within one week. In addition to their weekly library period, children have access to the library before school starts, at break time and after school hours up to 4.00 p.m.
