Library

Lambton High School promotes the ability to read whether it is paper or digitally based. The well resourced multi-media library caters for multiple teaching and learning areas.

Library staff supervise and support the effective usage of the following:

  • Computer learning space
  • Theatrette
  • Range of Seminar Rooms
  • Senior Study area
  • Library Web enquiry access
  • Presentation and reading area with wireless internet access

The large dynamic area utilises open space and provides an attractive venue to showcase student achievement and school activities. The Rose Awards, HSC Exhibitions of Visual Arts and Industrial Arts, Year 8 and Year 10 interviews for Authentic Learning projects, Green Day and Artibalds are all hosted in the Library.

The library houses a wonderfully diverse collection of resources and a core of committed readers. Reading is encouraged through the English faculty’s “Wide Reading’ program, the Premier’s Reading Challenge and Book Week activities.

The library is supportive of school initiatives and is the ‘hub’ of Green Day displays.

In December each year, the Library and the school community combine in the spirit of Christmas to support the Salvation Army Christmas Drive.

The Lambton High library is interactive, encouraging and socially supportive of students. The library is open from 8am to 3.15pm daily. L’extra Homework Club operates each Monday until 4pm, with staff available to assist students. Photocopying, printing, scanning, timetable/password assistance and Papercut vouchers are all part of the support services available at the library to assist students to achieve their ‘personal best’.

Whatever the purpose of visiting the library – whether it be studying, borrowing, reading, assignment work or a game of chess, the Library staff of Mrs. Dean (Teacher Librarian), Mrs. McCombie and Mrs. Poolman (Support Staff), are available to assist and guide students at Lambton High School.
