Golden Bay High School’s Library caters for approx. 300 students and staff and has over 6000 items on the library catalogue. It is open on school days from 8.45am to 3.15pm. Our school librarians are Yvonne Whiting and Kylie Connell. The librarians are assisted in the library at lunchtime by student librarians. The librarians are available to help students find recreational reading, relevant material for research and support classroom teaching.
Students are encouraged to read and to support this we have a DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) programme in place where the students literally ‘drop everything and read’ for 15 minutes a day. New books can be viewed on the display stand where they are changed weekly, and also on the library website. Students are encouraged to reserve any that interest them.
We have 6 desktop computers available for students with internet access. A data projector, video and Go Pro cameras, colour printer/copier, laptops and chrome books are available through our booking system.
For more information about new books in our library check out the library website link at the bottom of the page. Want to find a particular title or series go to the Library Search picture link.
