The Library at Castlemaine Secondary College is a welcoming, well-resourced and supportive space where the school community can pursue academic goals, enjoy the pleasure of reading, and connect on a social level.
The Library provides access to a wide variety of print and electronic resources to accommodate the diverse needs of students and staff. These include online databases, a specialised non-fiction print collection, recreational reading material in a range of formats, and resources to support staff professional learning.
In an increasingly information-rich world, it is essential that students learn how to effectively identify, access, evaluate, organise and communicate information. Library staff introduce students to these skills as part of the Library Passport program; as well as providing support for the explicit teaching of research skills within the classroom.
The Library also plays an important role in promoting a love of reading, with our qualified and experienced staff providing a variety of literary experiences, including a weekly Book club, Enrichment programs, excursions and author visits.
