Beaumaris North Primary School students have a program rich in literature and are able to borrow books from our well-stocked Library. We focus on enjoyment, imagination and information through stories and non- fiction material.

Students from Prep – Year 2 receive a weekly specialist Library lesson (30 minutes) taken by a trained Teacher Librarian. Lessons focus on literature appreciation, the use of the Public Access System, developing an understanding of various Library locations and parts of a book. The Library program also supports and extends the Units of Inquiry being studied in each year level and provides classrooms with a variety of resources to enrich the Units.

Students are able to borrow books from the Library according to their Class/year level timetable. The Library is also open one lunchtime per week (2.00 - 2.30pm) for quiet reading, borrowing and drawing.

Students are encouraged to be responsible for remembering their Library 'Book Borrowing Day' - it is vital that children bring their book back otherwise they cannot borrow a new book.

Library Bags

For book borrowing purposes, children are encouraged to have a protective Library bag labelled with both their first and surname.

A Library bag:

  • Protects the book
  • Ensures the Library book is kept separate from household books when not in use (making it easier to locate!)
  • Makes it easier for students to carry.

The Uniform Shop sells Library bags, however you may use any protective bag (preferably the size of a pillow slip to accommodate our larger books).
