Westall Information Resource Centre

Greetings from the Westall Information Resource Centre

What is the latest news from the library?

 

Access - it

We now have a new library catalogue! It is called Access-It and is much easier to use than our old system. We also have a special computer with the catalogue loaded so you can search for items whenever you come into the library.

 

New Books!

We have been working hard weeding our non-fiction section to make it up to date and relevant for all students. Come in and have a look to see the new items that we have collected to support your learning. Just a reminder that Non-Fiction items are resources that are full of facts and information. There are dictionaries, encyclopaedias, information books and even old textbooks. These can be borrowed for the same length of time as the fiction books.

 

Chess Club

We are looking for expression of interest in running a Chess Club in the library. It will run during lunch time on a day to be decided with the regular players as well as some expert guests, who will help teach some of the finer points of the game. We have many sets that get used regularly, and so, this is an opportunity for you to enhance and improve your skills. Staff and teachers are encouraged to join in as well.

 

A sign-up list will be placed in the library. The people who sign up will be contacted regarding a start date sometime this term.

 

iRead

As always, you are welcome to borrow books for your iRead program before and after school, as well as recess and lunch.

 

Remember as the weather gets colder, the library is a warm place to be.

 

See you here soon,

Library staff
