The library at Eaglehawk Secondary College is a bright, comfortable and friendly place to visit and is run by qualified and professional staff. The library is open four periods a day, before and after school, and at lunchtimes.

The library strives to:

  • Create a safe and welcoming environment where staff and students can work and study
  • Promote a reading culture and develop a love of literature
  • Teach information skills within the context of the curriculum
  • Collaborate with staff to provide accurate, current and relevant information, resources and ideas that support and enrich the curriculum

We have an extensive and up to date collection of fiction. The library also houses non fiction, reference, newspapers, graphic novels, magazines and picture books. An extensive collection of DVD's is available for staff borrowing to support their teaching as well as Clickview online video streaming.

Wide reading is greatly supported by an excellent collection of the latest fiction novels for young adults.

Information Literacy Program

At Years 7 and 8, students are scheduled into the library for one period a week as part of the English Program. During this session students are able to browse, borrow and read silently. Information Literacy skills lessons are also undertaken during this time as requested by the teacher.
