General:

The mission of Moorebank High School Library is to support the learning needs of the students and teachers and to promote a positive reading culture within the school.

The School Library is available to all students for the purpose of research, reading and study. The Library has an extensive collection of resources (over 10,000 items) and includes Fiction, Non-Fiction, eBooks, Reference, and Magazines. The majority of these resources are available for student use and/or loan. In addition, we have 68 networked computers with access to the internet (20 are reserved for Senior students) and Library enquiry terminals to assist with research.

Library Loans:

Changes to borrowing during COVID 19:

Due to current restrictions the School Library will not be open for general use during breaks so if students want to borrow a book they will need to use the Click & Collect method. I have made a short video to explain how this system works. Click&Collect 

Basically students request the books they want via the OLIVER catalogue, an email comes to me and then I can find the books on the shelves, sanitise them, loan them out, bag them up and have them ready for collection at the end of each day.

Book returns can be made in the usual way.

I have also made a video explaining a new method of borrowing eBooks through the OLIVER catalogue. eBook loans

See Mrs Tierney or the Library staff if you need any help with the new system.

Loans when school resumes:

All students receive a photo ID/Library card. The loan period for most items is two weeks.

Students may reserve a book that is on loan by filling in a reserve slip at the Circulation desk or online.

Overdue items need to be returned before further loans can be made. (Loans can be renewed for another two weeks as long as the item is not reserved by another student.)

*Year 7 & 8 may borrow 2 Fiction and 2 Non-Fiction titles

*Year 9 & 10 may borrow 3 Fiction and 3 Non-Fiction titles

*Year 11 & 12 may borrow 4 Fiction and 4 Non-Fiction titles

(If more items are required this can be negotiated with the Teacher Librarian)

Computer use:

Students may organise bookings for computers at the circulation desk in the Library. Priority is given to students working on assignments and researching or needing to print.

Other facilities:

A photocopier and colour printer are available. Copies are 10c for black/white and 50c for colour.

Display areas are used to promote new books, highlight current issues and present school/community information.
