The Michelle Williams Library
The Michelle Williams library is an essential resource and information centre in the learning community at Holy Family. It informs, educates, entertains and enriches students at all levels. The teacher librarian works collaboratively with staff and students, ensuring they are effective and efficient users of ideas and information as 21st Century learners. The teacher librarian promotes children’s literature, inquiry-based learning and information literacy, as well as maintaining a focus on ICT that enhances learning across all the Key Learning Areas.
Each week all classes visit the library for a scheduled lesson with the teacher librarian. During this time students are able to borrow from the large and varied collection of fiction books, picture books and nonfiction books. The library uses ‘Oliver’, a web-based library system that enables anyone to search the catalogue at school or at home.
