Library: Home


The Library Resource Centre offers students access to a large collection of print and electronic reference resources which includes a large fiction collection of modern and classic literature. 

Students are most welcome in the Library before school and at lunchtime to read, do homework, enjoy the comfortable environment, play a game of chess or other recreational game.  During class time the library operates as a safe working environment.

After school, students are encouraged to use the Library for private study.

The Library is open for the whole of lunch, and students are invited to use the facilities once you have finished eating.  

The Reading Lounge is available and may only be used by those wanting to do some quiet reading.  

Games including Mancala, Jenga, Guess Who? may be borrowed, along with decks of cards and UNO.  A couple of Chess boards are set up for those lucky enough to get in early.  

The Library is a Laptop Free Zone at lunchtime, and students needing to complete work or print will need to make appropriate arrangements.

Is the Koonung Library lacking something?  Do you know of an exceptional book, we should purchase?  Would you like us to buy a particular book you're wanting to read?
