CSPD school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading.

They provide access to a range of resources that help students on their Learning journey and help inspire purposeful learning.

Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learner dispositions and capabilities to cultivate a culture of curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.

Our physical library

The library hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, assisting students who have limited access to technology and other information resources at home.

Students are issued with an ID card which is used to borrow from the library and they are encouraged to have this with them at all times.

Our large collection of fiction books include a collection of Graphic novels, Manga and Animae. We also provide online database access to journals and articles purchased by the diocese for student and staff use, which complement the currency of our Non-Fiction Collection.

Student support

Teacher Librarians are on hand to assist students with locating quality information from relatable sources and ensure it is used in an ethical manner. All library staff have a great passion for literature and are on hand to provide help to students to find their next ‘great read’.
