Tambrey Primary School Library is a vibrant, buzzing and welcoming environment used by students and teachers on a variety of levels. The area incorporates a welcoming relaxed open space which provides students with learning contexts, processes, skills as well as opportunities for wide reading, personal growth and enjoyment. The Schools Library collection provides a wide range of books and non-book material to support the varied school curriculum. The Library is located in Block 3 and is organized into Picture Story, Fiction, Non-Fiction and Teacher Resource areas.
The Library management system is Oliver 5, an easy to use Web based system with a sophisticated search engine, which features all school resources.
Borrowing times are allocated by classroom teachers with classes timetabled in weekly. All students need to use a bag or book protector when borrowing and students can borrow for a 1 week period.
The Library is opened most lunchtimes to provide an alternative to outdoor play and is managed by our Library Leaders. Our Library Leaders are students from Year 6 who volunteer their time to support a range of lunchtime programs with the support of the duty teacher.
