St. Patrick's College Library
Our device free lunchtimes are going well. Each Friday the library is device free and everyone plays the games that the library provides. Just recently we have had a new selection of games bought which include Risk, the Game of Life, more chess games, draughts and more cards. The library has a different vibe about it when we disconnect to reconnect.
Why are libraries important especially school libraries, watch this video to see why.

The Library contributes to student learning and achievement by supporting students' research needs, teaching information and digital literacies, and promoting reading for enjoyment.
We support and encourage all St. Patrick students to become:
- skilled seekers and critical users of information
- good digital citizens
- lifelong readers
- lifelong learners
We do this by
- curating and providing access to a great selection of relevant and high interest print and online resources
- teaching information literacy and digital literacy skills, in context with Inquiry topics
- providing a range of services and facilities, appropriate for 21st Century learners
The Library is open 8.00am to 4.30 pm each day, the only time we shut is at morning break.
