Library

                       

Welcome to Brighton State School Library.

Our school library houses a collection of more than 17,000 resources, an up-to-date collection reflecting the needs of our school community.

The Library is open for borrowing and browsing

  •  before school from 8.00 am

  • during first break 11.00 to 11.25 am 

Parents are welcome to visit the library to assist their children in selecting resources before and after school.

All children need a library bag when borrowing to protect the book and prevent excessive wear and tear.

Loans are for a two week period.

All students visit the library at least once each week with their class to browse, return and borrow. Students may borrow two books at a time and may renew up to 3 times.

Our extensive collection features the best new Australian and International releases each year. Students have access to a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books, picture books and popular series.

Our library hosts a computer lab with 24 student workstations which is used by classes throughout the week. Students may access the computer lab at first break. Lunchtime activities in the library include quiet reading, games and puzzles, colouring and drawing, chess, lego and craft activities.

 Children's Book Week is a huge week of celebration in the library. Activities include a Dress up parade, displays and special performances.
