Parent Information

The school library is open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 3:00pm (except morning tea time) and until 3:30 on Wednesdays. It is often open for a while after school on other days too. So please call in and visit our space or spend some time there with your children.


Our website is an important part of our library. It is an evolving resource for everyone in the school community to use and contribute to. We welcome your comments on the library blog.

Access-It is the name of our library catalogue programme. There are a number of things Access-It can be used for apart from finding items in the library. Items can be reserved and renewed, reviews written, and borrowing details obtained using individual student sign ins. You will receive a Borrower Number and Password for you and your child to use on the Access-It website. Information about how to reserve items, write reviews and renew books are on the Access-It homepage. Go to My Library on the lower left of the screen to log on to Borrowing Detail. You don't need to log in to use the search functions e.g. Fast Find, Advanced Search.

We expect children to be responsible for the care and protection of our lovely new library books. All children should have a safe method (book bag, plastic bag, separate pocket in their school bag) to transport books to and from school, away from drink bottles and lunch boxes.

We look forward to seeing you in the library. Please call in or email Carolyn if you have any questions. Her email address is carolyn@amesbury.school.nz
