The C stands for communication because IT helps us to communicate with each other and share ideas and information. The ICTs we have in the library are:CLICK Computers: We have 18 computers available for students to use for schoolwork only. That means no games! Computers are accessed with your user name and password.These will be given out over the next 2 weeks in class.This password is not to be given to, or used by, any other students in the school. It is for your own private use. Keep it in a safe place.CLICK Wireless InternetCLICK • Printers/Photocopiers:Printing: Any work you print from the computers goes to the printer/photocopier.

  • Borrowing: Students can borrow up to 6 books for a 2 week period and renew them up to 2 times, unless it is reserved byanother student.Save time by presenting your student ID card when borrowing.Books are to be returned by the due date through the book return slot at the loans desk. You can’t borrow if you have overduebooks. Lost items should be reported as quickly as possible. Student can resume borrowing once the lost item has been paidfor at the library.You can also request a book if the library does not hold it in our collection.Our books are divided into two main sections, these are FICTION BOOKS and NON-FICTION books.CLICK 
  • Fiction Books can be known as “Works of imagination”, “made-up” stories or “not true books”.They are arranged in alphabetical order by the first four letters of the author’s last name. E.G. ROWLIncluded in this section are Picture books, Skinny books and Talking books (audio cassettes of popular reading books).We also have manga, graphic novels and comics.You will be encouraged to read these books during your English periods in the library.If you are looking for something to read take into account the GENRE stickers on the book spines. For example, Harry Potteris Fantasy.For quick reads under 60 pages choose a SKINNY BOOK.CLICK 
  • Non-fiction books or “true” books are about real facts regarding people and events.These are arranged by Subject numbers within the Dewey Decimal system.Mr. Dewey allocated a subject to every number from 000 to 999, so every item in the library has a number on it. This is theCALL NO.The non-fiction call no. has 2 parts; the top part is the subject no. and the bottom part is the first 3 letters of the author’ssurname.At the end of each bay is a quick guide to the general subjects with each number range.CLICK 
