Library

Welcome to Wadalba Community School

We have a number of lovely, bright spaces for lessons, reading and studying and a large array of resources for borrowing.

Senior students have a special area for quiet study.

There are a number of sections in the library resource collection including:

  • Fiction
  • Non fiction
  • Biographies
  • Senior Study Guides - print and USB (PDHPE)
  • Graphic Novels
  • Picture books
  • Magazines
  • Electronic database

We subscribe to World Book (WB) online which is an electronic database of encyclopedia articles covering a wide range of subjects for Primary and Secondary students.  Information within WB may also include videos and images, plus there are maps, an atlas and dictionary.  The teacher librarian is here to help you with finding a book or resource to best meet your information or literary needs.  Teacher librarians also work with classroom teachers as instructional partners in the learning process particularly in terms of information technology, accessing quality information and research skills.  The library assistant is able to assist with borrowing and printing.
