Cambewarra Public School Library

At Cambewarra Public School we envision that our school library is where students and staff have the opportunity to develop the necessary skills in information and digital literacy to help them navigate the modern and every changing future information landscape.  

This occurs through collaboration and consultation about the individual needs of all students and staff. The teacher librarian provides positive learning experiences to enable students to reach their full potential to become engaged readers who have a lifelong appreciation of reading and learning.  

Students participate in lessons to develop skills that enable them to analyse and access information efficiently whilst developing the skills for critical and efficient analysis as users of information.  Our library collection can be defined as, a place where relevant resources are curated, both print and digital, that meet the needs of all members of our school community.  

Our library is flexible, modern and has technologically current learning environment, which is adaptable to the ever- changing educational paradigms that exist in today’s world. 

Our Library is open 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays. Students can borrow books and participate weekly in lessons with our teacher librarian, Mrs Bennett and thier class teacher.

Students also have access to a wide collection of books, STEAM lessons as well as the development of information literacy and digital literacy skills. Students can suggest books they would like added to our collection, to ensure they have access to books they enjoy.

Our school has regular events such as author visits, Premiers Reading Challenge, National Simultaneous Storytime, Scholastic Book Club, celebration of CBCA Book Week including a book character parade and a book fair using our local Dymocks store. We participate in CBCA Shadow Judging and the Collide Book Trailer competition. When possible, our students participate in excursions to our local library.
