The collection includes over 13 000 titles and 11 computers for student access The Library continually seeks to provide new resources with a wide range of both fiction and information titles added each term. Recommendations from students and staff are always welcome.  Students also have access to computer resources, including the Internet and a range of software to assist in the creation of their projects and reports.

Students have access to their school library catalogue through the DET Portal.  So whether students are at home or school they can check on available resources.  Selected websites can also be found using the catalogue.  These are carefully chosen websites added to support the specific curriculum needs of our students.
