SPX Library: About Us

Senior Library's Home Page

Welcome

The Senior Library serves the creative and intellectual needs of our learning community.  Our spaces are vibrant, pleasant and organised. Our virtual library equips students with quality information resources to support their school studies when they need it.  There is plenty of choice for recreational reading with eBooks and audiobooks available 24/7.

Our teacher librarians are readers who encourage reading as a lifetime pursuit. We guide students to develop the information and digital literacies needed for researching school assignments and beyond.

The Senior Library is open 7.30 am - 4.30 pm.

Borrowing

How many books can I borrow? 
You can borrow as many books as you like.  

How long can I borrow? 
You can borrow books for 2 weeks and longer if you renew or extend your loan. You can login to the library catalogue using your usual computer logins and renew your loans. You can also renew your loan in person at our friendly help desk.You don't need to bring the book to do this. 

How can I get a book that's out?  
If a book is on loan and you'd like to read it next: you can reserve it. Make your request to the library staff or reserve online by logging into the library catalogue using your usual computer logins.

I've lost a book, what do I do?
When you borrow a book, it's your responsibility to look after it. Returning it in a reasonable time not only minimizes the risk of misplacing a book but shares the book with members of our school.  You'll receive friendly email reminders to help you.  

  • If you've lost a book, don't worry! Let the library staff know and we'll try and help you.
  • If it can't be found within a reasonable time, the cost of replacing the lost book will be added to your school fees.
