Norge Library - The Herborn Library
Welcome to the Norge Junior School Library officially know as The Herborn Library. For students at our school, the library is a place where they can discover new realms. Our aim is to equip the boys with skills that will allow them to navigate their way through new technologies and the vast expanse of knowledge in our everchanging world. Students are welcome to come in and borrow books, read and research topics using both print and non-print materials. Our Library programs aim to tie in with classroom themes and areas of learning wherever possible, making the library an extension of the classroom. During library lessons reading, listening and research skills are honed and developed. Throughout the year the children participate in many activities designed to encourage a love of reading and literature. The Library is central to the school community and everyone is welcome. Come in, say hello and 'GET READING'.
Contact details: Parents can contact the library staff on 9835 1726 or email either Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or Anna at email@example.com
Parent helpers: Every Wednesday parents from all years meet in the library to cover books, have a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy a chat. This is a great way to meet other parents and actively participate in the Junior School Community. If you have a spare Wednesday morning don't hesitate to email Michelle to confirm it is on, or just pop in!

Guess what we have won?
10 new ottoman seats! We entered a competition run by Raeco, a library supply company, and were lucky enough to win. We had to post "Shelfie" photos featuring the shelving supplied by Raeco. The more entries, and the more creative the entry, the more chance we had of winning. Here are some of our entries along with photos of the colourful new seating.
