Our library is bright, cheerful and well stocked with lots of new books. The girls can borrow the books to enjoy at home. We have factual books for all ages, graded readers, story books (novels) and picture books. The library is overseen by a qualified librarian who works closely with the teaching staff and when purchasing new stock. Our invaluable parent volunteers together with Year 6 girls, who help out at lunch times, issue books and return them to the shelves, enabling the library to run smoothly. Fairseat girls really appreciate their library and feel very lucky to have such a wonderful resource.
