The Marist College Canberra libraries, located in both the Senior School and Junior School, play a significant role in implementing, enhancing and supporting the teaching and learning programs at the College.
Our teacher librarians work closely with staff and students to explore engaging and inquiry-based learning experiences, developing digital and information literacy skills, and a strong, school-wide reading culture.
Staff from both libraries work together to ensure continuity of engagement for students, while being able to provide dedicated spaces for students to use. Our libraries offer vibrant teaching and learning environments, with carefully curated resources that cater to the needs of students and staff, blending print and digital holdings to present a rich and dynamic collection for all.
With a quality selection of fiction, non-fiction, magazines and databases available for students, alongside extensive access to a variety of digital devices, the College libraries facilitate learning in all forms. Incorporation of the ebook delivery platform 'Overdrive' offers digital book access anywhere, anytime, from any device. This means the libraries are more accessible than ever before.
Both libraries run regular Co-Curricular programs and events for students, including Homework Help, reading challenges, Reading Café, trading card tournaments, and much more. Students are encouraged to engage in activities and programs, and to utilise the library spaces in both traditional and innovative ways.
