Our school library is an important feature in our learning landscape and is found beside our school swimming pool. We have the most magnificent view looking at the bush and the magnificent Kauri trees our school is named for. The library was purpose built for Kaurilands School and was opened in 1999.
It is a special place where knowledge, learning, relaxation and entertainment are at your fingertips. Kaurilands Library houses an extensive collection of books. Students are able to find books, reserve titles, research information and check out the new titles that will be available for borrowing.
To encourage children to read, our library is open from 8.30am until 8.55am, 1.10 -1.45pm (lunchtime) and after school until 3.40pm.
Reading is an important leisure time activity to promote for life. Every class has a timetabled library visit during the week. We also have a Summer Reading programme.
Each child has their own borrower’s number with Years 4, 5 and 6 issued library cards. You can request the number from the library, along with the password. This gives children access to Kaurilands School Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) which allows them to search, reserve, write book reviews and check what books they currently have issued to them. To use our OPAC programme and reserve or find a book click here.
If you can’t find one of our books, we ask you to have a really good look at home, in the car, in your class library and on our library shelves. Have a think about where you might have seen it last. Don’t be afraid to come and ask as sometimes books go back onto the shelves without being returned through the computer.
All children must bring their library bags to be able to take their books home with them. Our books are precious. They can take us all around the universe.
If you have a favourite book or series or even a favourite author, we welcome your suggestions. Kaurilands library is your library. It is here for you to enjoy.
We do our best to make every visit a pleasure.
