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.

The library is now open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:30am for students to come and read a book.  Parents, grandparents and carers, if you would like to come to the library and read with your child/children the library is open from 8:15am on the same days.

Student borrowing

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

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.

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.

We have a resource section of books available to Parents also within the library. We have books on issues such as diet, anxiety, swimming and reading to name a few.

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