Library

The layout of the new library provides flexible areas of teaching and enables more than one class to utilise the library at the same time. Students and staff have access to a computer lab and a wide range of quality resources.

At Dutton Park State School the Teacher Librarian supports class room teachers to integrate the literature, information literacy and ICT components of the curriculum into the class program.

Each class teacher has a specific time for a lesson and borrowing. Borrowing rules are as follows:

  • Prep may borrow one book with library bag.
  • Years 1 to 3 may borrow up to two books with a library bag.
  • Years 4 to 6 may borrow three books. A library bag is highly recommended.

Loan periods and overdue items

Student book loans are for a period of two weeks. Each month teachers are given a list of overdue loans of students. At the end of each term a letter is mailed home to inform the parents that their child’s books are overdue. Any books not returned will be deemed lost and will be invoiced at $15/book to cover replacement costs. Students and parents are encouraged to contact library staff about overdue or damaged books.

Lunchtime activities

Library monitors (Year 6 students) assist staff at lunchtime. Students are able to select from a range of activities: games, puzzles, jigsaws, computers (educational purposes), quiet reading, drawing, or watch a movie or documentary. Throughout the year we offer additional activities including: National Simultaneous Storytime, author visits, Book Week book character parade, and visits from Brisbane City Council libraries. Extracurricular activities offered include: Readers Cup Competition, Brisbane Writers Festival, Book Week evening for parents.
