– All parents and members of the BISP community can use our libraries at any time during the school day. The Secondary Library is currently being renovated, but the Primary one can be used in the meantime.

– The Library is open Monday-Friday from 7.30am to 4.30pm.

– Parents can take up to 7 books at the same time, and up to 10 during the holidays.

– We would like to remind parents that students should not be left unsupervised in the Primary Library after school. All students should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

– Our Primary Library online catalogue can be accessed here: http://bis.softlinkhosting.com.au/oliver/olly/welcome.do. You are then able to search for books we have in the Primary Library and be informed of new books arriving.

– We also have a database of e-books for children. These books can be read online or listened to: www.tumblebooklibrary.com (Please contact Cindy Colson for login and password details)
