Homebush Boys High School Library is a dynamic and active learning hub of the school where students can come for both reading enjoyment, study and to assist them in their research endeavours.
A rich variety of materials are provided to support students in their educational, informational and recreational needs. The collection includes over 10,000 titles and 11 computers for student access. Laptops are also available for borrowing throughout the school day. The Library continually seeks to provide new resources with a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction titles added each term. Our digital collections continue to grow too. Recommendations from students and staff are always welcome. Students also have access to printers, computer resources, including the Internet and a range of software to assist in the creation of their assessment tasks and class work.
Students have access to their school library catalogue through the DET Portal. So whether students are at home or school they can check on available resources. Digital resources can also be located using the catalogue. These are carefully chosen websites added to support the specific curriculum needs of our students. Ms McQueen (Teacher-Librarian) can act as a reader advisor, research skills expert, referencing and citations assistance, as well as providing help with printing issues.
Students are able to research, read and explore new ideas in the library before school, recess, and at lunchtime. Homebush Boys HS Library staff are dedicated to providing members of the school community with a range of services, as well as access to the resources, in a quality learning environment. There are 2 teaching areas, study desks for individual work as well as soft chairs for recreational reading. Library staff are available to support students and staff in their endeavours in the library. Ms McQueen is also happy to assist students with developing their information and research skills and creating study plans.
