Library services

Preschool student reading

The Max Badham Library and Resource Centre is a wonderful resource for our children, staff and families. It houses our library and a number of meeting and training rooms.

Our library has a wide range of books and resources for students, families and teachers. The library is open for borrowing before school from 8:30–8:55am (with teacher or parent supervision), second half of lunch from 11:35–11:55am and after school from 3:00–3:15pm.

Student borrowing

  • Preschool one books limit
  • Kindergarten three books
  • 1/2 three books
  • 3/4 four books
  • 5/6 six books

Please note the above is merely a guide and the Library can be flexible depending on student needs.
Students visit the library each week during class and our loan period is two weeks. Students may renew their loan anytime at school or online. Books are overdue after three weeks and students are encouraged to return them to the Library. If library books are damaged at home whilst borrowed by a student, we ask that students replace that book with a new or good used copy.

Students at Turner School are shown how to borrow from our extensive range of e and audio books, available at school and at home. Please see Library staff for help.

Students should have a library bag to protect library books between home and school.

Family borrowing

Parents and Carers may open a Family Borrowing Account and borrow up to 20 books at a time for a period of three weeks. Our library also has a range of books and resources specially for parents/carers on subjects such as supporting your child’s education, behaviour and additional needs. This Collection is located at the rear of the library.

Our Library staff are happy to any questions you may have or assist with opening new family accounts.
