CSDP school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading.

They provide access to a range of resources that help students on their learning journey and help inspire purposeful learning.

Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learner dispositions and capabilities to cultivate a culture of curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.

Our physical library

Our school library is well resourced and allows students to develop and pursue a passion for reading. It is a bright and welcoming space designed for quiet reading, group research tasks, crafts and games.

Students have access to a wide range of reading materials and are encouraged to make use of the library for Reading Club and at lunch times.

Student support

Teacher Librarians are on hand to assist students with locating quality information from relatable sources and ensure it is used in an ethical manner. All library staff have a great passion for literature and are on hand to provide help to students to find their next ‘great read’.
