Welcome to our Library and Information Centre!

As a student at Green Bay School, you will visit the library at least once a week with your class.  The library is open from 8.30am - 3.30pm  Monday to Friday, including lunchtimes, 1.30pm – 2.00pm for students to borrow books, browse, do research and play board games. 

All classes have a weekly scheduled time to come to the library for a variety of research, reading and library skills-based exercises.

Pupils can change their books weekly or may choose more books during the week, as long as they bring back their issued books.
Years  1 & 2 - 1 book 
Years  3 & 4 - 2 books
Years  5 & 6 - 3 books
Years  7 & 8 - 4 books

Books are issued for 2 weeks.  If you need them longer, you are welcome to bring them in and have them re-issued. 

We do not fine for overdue books BUT we will charge for lost or damaged books.  Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their borrowed books.  Please ensure you carry your books to and from school in a library bag to protect them.  Library bags can be purchased from the resource room for $8.00.

It's a cool place to visit, see you there soon!
