Library Borrowing

We are hopeful that as restrictions continue to ease, we will be able to welcome the boys back into the Library space, but until then, we will continue with library borrowing in classes. The Year 3 students were very excited to begin their borrowing, as you can see from the photos! We were impressed with the maturity of boys who took the initiative to email the Library Staff and request certain books. At the moment, we are able to manage these requests and would therefore like to encourage more students to request books for borrowing.

Have Your Say!

The 2021 academic year is quickly coming to an end, which means our minds are buzzing with ideas for what the Library space could look like next year. Whilst we very much enjoy this, we also want to make the space one that the boys can own. Boys, please put on your thinking hats and try to imagine your perfect Library, what does it include? Which books are on the shelves? What can you do in break times? What games or resources can you access? What does the Library space look like? If you have any ideas for The Prep Library 2022, please email Mrs Nel at anel@trinity.nsw.edu.au, we can’t wait to hear what your ideal library looks like.
