Our resources include collections of picture books, fiction and non-fiction books for all ages and reading levels. We also have a great collection of Islamic books for Junior, Primary and Secondary students. In addition, the library receives a number of subscription magazines, such as Time Magazine, National Geographic, NZ Geographic, BBC History Magazine, Zoobooks and others.

Students visit library on a weekly basis, and they may borrow:

These restrictions are set in place in order to avoid unnecessary overdues and to ensure the smooth circulation and availability of library resources to all library users.

We do not charge a fine for overdue books, however students may not borrow books until the overdue books are returned. If a book is lost or damaged beyond the repair, students will be asked to pay for it or to replace the lost/damaged book with a similar title (for more detail please refer to our School Library Circulation Policy).
