Grovely State School library is staffed part time, by our Teacher Librarian and assisted by Teacher Aides during the week. Many volunteers assist in the library with covering of books, listening to students read and organising home readers.
Students come to the library before and after school as well as during lunch to read, use computers or just have quiet time away from the outdoor areas.
Student borrowing is encouraged weekly to create a habit of reading and exploring new books. Preps borrow one book per week and the borrowing rights are gradually increased with the responsibility and year level needs of the student.
The library houses a Parent Library as part of the collection and parents and caregivers are encouraged to come and borrow from this library. This collection has some curriculum resources that parents can also borrow relating to Montessori teaching practices.
We hold book fairs in the year and book club to assist with raising much needed funds for the resourcing and maintenance of the resource collection.
