The Pichet Library
Mount Sackville has a well stocked school library for students, staffed by a full time school librarian. Teachers book their classes into the library by arrangement with the librarian when their classes need to use the library's resources. In addition to this, students use the library in their free time, i.e. at break and lunch time and after school until 5pm. The library is a lending library; students may borrow up to three books at a time to take home. The library has a large fiction section as well as a classified non-fiction section. The library also subscribes to fifteen educational magazines and newspapers. The library also has DVDs and revision and study skills guides. There are seven computers in the library with internet access, a colour printer and a photocopier. The librarian helps students with research skills and is available to advise classes about information literacy according to their needs. The school tries to encourage reading for pleasure and the library aims to provide students with relevant, good quality, inspiring reading material and has an exciting range to choose from, as well as being a spacious place to sit and read or to do research.
Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
