Norge Library - The Herborn Library
Welcome to the Norge Junior School Library officially known 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 ever changing world. Students are welcome to come in and borrow books and 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'.

Friends of Library have stepped up again! With the generous support of this wonderful group, we have been able to replace the student tables and purchase versatile and welcoming seating. Please detour through the library on your way down to the classrooms to see how it all looks. The boys are very much enjoying the new reading and sharing areas the new seating allows us to create. Thank you Friends of Library from the boys and the staff of Junior School.
New signs to help locate books.
We have replaced most of the signage in the Fiction and Non Fiction areas of the library. The new signs are a more visible, clearer guide to help the boys locate their favourite book areas and authors.
