Our school library is well stocked and is reviewed and upgraded yearly. This library is computerised, and computer facilities are available for use by both students and staff. All school library resources are available for children and parents. Children are encouraged to borrow books on a regular basis, and these may be borrowed for a period of two weeks. It is essential that children have a material or plastic library bag, in order to protect books. Borrowed books must be returned on, or before due date, and further books will not be issued until all books borrowed have been returned. Parents are asked to notify the school if a book has been lost or damaged and a donation will be requested. Library assistance by parents is welcomed.
Ashton Scholastic Book Club operates in the school and books may be purchased through this club. The school benefits by obtaining free books of our choice for the school library.
A Book Fair is held once yearly and this fair offers parents the opportunity to purchase books at a reasonable cost. The school benefits financially through the purchases made and resources for the library are bought with this. This usually occurs in Term 4.
