GRC Peakhurst Campus has a modern well equipped library. Each year many books are added to the existing library collection to support the Key Learning Areas.

Fiction and recreational reading (i.e. books on hobbies, sports etc.) are also purchased regularly. Magazines and newspapers provide current information. The reference collection is large and supplemented by an extensive computer network and access to the Internet. All student reading levels are catered for in the choice of resources.

The library opening hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. each day. It is open all day except during lunch on Wednesdays.

All students are issued with a free personalised library card which may also be used as ID, or as proof of age. This card must be produced to borrow a book. The student whose name appears on the card is responsible for all items borrowed on the card. Damaged or lost books must be paid for. Lost or damaged library cards must be reported to the Library and a replacement card will be issued at a cost.

Students are allowed to borrow up to four books at any time. The loan period for all books is two weeks. Books may be renewed if you need to use them for longer than two weeks.  Books may be reserved if you enquire at the desk. Some reference books may be taken home on a strictly overnight borrowing system.

Each student is responsible for returning books by the due date. The system won't allow students to borrow additional books if they have overdue loans. Reminder notes may be issued and should not be ignored. Please see the Library staff if you have any queries about these notes.

The teacher-librarian is always available to help if you need any information or assistance. When using the library, you must be actively engaged in reading and writing for study purposes.

Please observe the following rules so that the library can function efficiently and fairly for everyone:

  • return your books promptly (others may be waiting for them)
  • be as quiet as possible (so you don't disturb students trying to study)
  • don't bring any food into the library at any time (accidents with food damage books).
