Leichhardt Public School Library is a highly resourced facility available to all the students, teachers, staff and parents of our school community. It includes a connected classroom, wireless network and computer laboratory as well as an extensive collection of current fiction and non-fiction titles. Our Teacher Librarian works collaboratively with teachers in ensuring quality resources are available for DEC teaching and learning programs and encourages students to explore all forms of Literacy. The Library is open every day for teacher supervised activities which are supported by the Librarian.
The Library Program includes timetabled class library lessons and Information Technology class timetable.
The additional Library Activities throughout the year include whole school participation in the P&C Readathon, Book Fair, Book Character Parade and competitions to celebrate Book Week in Term 3, writing workshops, talks and performances from visiting authors and illustrators and hosting special visitors to the school.
We ask that children have a bag clearly labelled with their names and class in order to protect the books. It is easier for younger children to keep track of their books this way.
