Welcome to Kewdale Primary School Library. We have a fantastic range of fiction and non-fiction books, graphic novels, series, classics and sports books available for students to borrow. All children across the school, from Kindy to Year 6 are able to borrow books for a week at a time. Children can change their books frequently if they prefer, or renew them. Kindy, Pre-Primary and Year 1 can borrow 1 book per week and Year 2–Year 6 can borrow 2 books per week. Please make sure your child has a sturdy library bag to protect their books.

Our students have access to MyOn digital library containing more than 5,000 books in variety of topics.

Please make sure you know when your child’s library day is and encourage them to share their books with you, even the older students. There has been a lot of research which shows that reading to your child, even long after they can independently read, helps them in all areas of learning. Dr Margaret Marga, lecturer at ECU has spent time researching reading aloud to 8-11 year old children and found that they miss being read aloud to by their parents. So it’s worth putting in the effort for the benefit of your children.

Scholastic Book fair is postponed at this time for current Covid situation.

Parents are always welcome to visit the library, just to have a look, to help shelve books or assist in covering new books. Volunteers are important in helping the library function smoothly, please pop in to see how you can help.
