Our Library supports and inspires learning across our entire College community.

The College Library contains a wide range of resources and flexible learning areas. It is a building that has been designed to meet the diverse needs of students and staff from the early years to senior schooling. Our facilities include:

  • A purpose built computer laboratory with interactive whiteboard
  • Collaborative work spaces
  • Seating for our smallest to our tallest visitors
  • Individual study and reading corners
  • Distributed technology
  • Dedicated and flexible teaching areas
  • Committed library staff

Our Teacher Librarian works in collaboration with teachers to provide support, encouragement and instruction to classes, groups and individual students. Our goal is to produce discriminating lifelong learners skilled in the use of information and communication technologies and able to access and utilise information from a wide range of sources.

Another important aspect of our work is reading promotion. A number of special events throughout the year focus specifically on encouraging students to read widely. These include:

  • The Premier’s Reading Challenge
  • Book Week
  • Book Clubs each term and an annual Book Fair

As a relatively new school our collection is constantly growing. It includes online subscriptions as well as a range of print resources such as magazines, graphic novels and traditional books suited to pre-readers through to young adults. Our library catalogue is available online here.

Book Week

Each year TLC brings children and books together by celebrating Book Week. We celebrate Australian Literature with a Book Fair and Book Week Parade.


Parents are welcome to drop in to the library at any time to help out. This is a great way to meet other parents, learn about our library and make a valuable contribution to the quality of the service we are able to provide.

For more information please email our Head of Library and Research, Therese Stafford tstafford@thelakes.qld.edu.au.
