Welcome to the Knowledge Nest
Nau mai, haere mai ki te whare pukapuka!
We are open at lunchtimes Monday – Thursday
Our student librarians are always happy to help you with anything!
Head + Heart + Hands
Each class visits the library once a week with their teacher. The library is also open every lunchtime (except Fridays).
Library books are issued for two to three weeks and students can borrow up to four books. If they have not finished reading them they can renew them for two more weeks. They can also go on a waiting list and reserve books.
There are no fines for overdue books.
Please make sure your child has a waterproof book bag to protect their school library books.
It is easy to return books. You can put them in the grey box outside the school office or return them to the green monster in the library. Please encourage your child to return their library books as quickly as possible.
Your child will bring home a letter if they have a very overdue library book. If you cannot find the book and think it may be lost please sign the form and return it to the school office. We can then double-check in the classroom and in the library. If the book is still missing we will delete it from the catalogue.
We do not invoice families for lost books. If you would like to pay a donation we suggest $10 per book. You can pay this to the school office.
School Holiday loans
Your child is able to take books home for the holidays. Please do not take any library books away on holiday with you. All books need to be returned to school by the end of Term 4.
National Library books
Each term we order a set of books from the National Library. Students can borrow these books from the school library but they need to come back to school before the end of term.
