Brisbane Central State School staff recognize our key role in supporting and enhancing the students recreational reading, promoting a reading culture as well as student learning and discovery.
Our library includes a diverse and large collection of children's literature including picture books, fiction chapter books and non-fiction for the upper and lower school.
The library is open Monday to Friday, for class-time borrowing.
We encourage students to have a waterproof library bag with their name on it, to assist with borrowing and returning of books.
We are looking forward to a new library within the near future, which caters for a variety of group setting and learning areas.
In term 3 we celebrate Children's Book Week whereby students and staff dress up as their favourite book character and are involved in reading activities using the awar winning books. This special occasion celebrates and recognizes Australian children's author and illustrators.
