Our Catherine McAuley Library – A welcoming space for all!

Library Lovers’ Week is an opportunity for our school community to celebrate the many valuable ways our Library contributes to learning at St Aloysius. Whether we can help with sourcing quality resources for research, finding a book that is ‘just right’ for the next read, or sharing the magic of a story, our library staff are passionate about supporting students develop their love of learning and reading.

Through the 2022 theme, ‘Show the Love’, last week we celebrated with students in their library sessions through craft activities, themed stories and the opportunity to borrow a ‘blind-date-with-a-book’. Our older students were able to discover new authors and genres by taking a chance on a mystery package! 

Our new Reception students were also loving the library when they participated in their first library borrowing session. It was wonderful to watch them engage in the joy of being read to, the enthusiasm of talking about a story together and the excitement of choosing that first book to take home.
