Churchlands Library is an inviting and engaging flexible space for students to enjoy. The Teachers - Library provides support for the teaching and learning programmes to staff and students.

We select and evaluate materials for students, we assist students with the development of skills of collaborating, critical thinking, communicating and creating as well as manage the physical space of our great library.

Our Library is a community hub for our students.

The Library hours are 8.30am to 4.00pm including most break times.

Senior students can access the library to study and read for both Break 1 and Break 2.

Break 1 – Year 9 and 10 students have priority for study and reading.

Break 2 – Year 7 and 8 students have priority for study and reading.

Please note these are new times for 2024.

You can view our resources using our catalogue link as well as downloading eBooks from our eBook platform Wheelers on either the school webpage or SEQTA. For information on where to access these resources and links please see Library staff.


Library Initiatives

Reading Time

All Year 7 and 8 students have one period fortnightly, where they will be introduced to a range of skills, both ICT and literacy related as well as time to read. This program supports literacy and ICT aspects of the general capabilities within the Western Australian Curriculum.

Year 7 and 8 students will participate in a range of activities around reading including the West Australian Young Readers Book Awards ( WAYRBA) and the Premiers Reading Challenge. Remember to keep an eye on seqta notices and the school bytes for any exciting news.

Book Club

Our book club is open to all staff and students, and we hold our meeting twice a term Week 4 and 8. Check out the notice board and seqta for when.

Home Work Club

The club for Term 1 is held in the library for all students on Monday. The hours are 3.00pm to 4.00 pm. The club will finish for the year Term 4 Week 6 or 7. Refer to the Churchlands Bytes for the latest information. The library is open until 4.00pm however.

This is a great opportunity for students to do their homework. It is important that students who attend have homework to complete.

All students in Years 7-10 will need to sign in and must stay for the whole session.


To support students and their families to stay safe online we have selected and developed a variety of resources. These can be found on our Library Management system by clicking here. Particular focus is on the ACARA General Capabilities of digital literacy, personal and social capability and ethical understandings.

New Student Inductions

In collaboration with the Heads of Year, ICT and Library Staff, we welcome new students to a session where we can explore together resources available online to them as well as how to navigate the online Churchlands environment. These sessions will be held at least once a term and students will be notified when to attend.

Daily Loan Laptops

Year 7-12 students can borrow a laptop for a day loan from the library.
