Parent Information

If your child is in a Kinder, grade 1 or grade 2 class, they must have a Library bag in order to borrow books.

Parents and caregivers can visit the Library with their children to read and borrow books, to research homework projects, and talk to Mrs. Landale on Tuesdays after school from 3:00pm to 3:45pm.

This time is for Library use and research, not for free computer time.

 

Library Opening Times

As well as during class and after school on Tuesdays, the Library is open at lunchtimes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:10pm to 1:30pm. This time provides students with a quiet, relaxing space to enjoy reading, board games, free time on the computers, and craft activities run by our Library Ministers. The Library will also be open at break times during periods of very hot or wet weather (advised on the day by school staff).

Students are able to borrow and return books during their Library lessons. They are also able to return books in the morning before school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

 

Special Events in the Library

Each year the Library celebrates the Children's Book Council of Australia Book Week. During this time, special activities are planned such as the book fair, the dress up parade, art activities and possibly an author visit / performance.

Other Library events planned for 2018 are the National Simultaneous Story-time, and the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge, which Deni South students have been participating in for a number of years. Information about Library events will be put in the school newsletter and on the school Facebook site.
