Year 7 students are currently taking part in Library Orientation classes. Armed with an iPad, the students are encouraged to look for the QR codes placed around the library and then scan them. Once scanned, the QR code will give the students information about the library. For example, students will learn the opening hours of the library, they will learn about homework club, different genres available in fiction, reference books and encyclopedias. They will also learn that the library offers a warm and welcoming environment.
