Library

Sacred Heart College Library’s mission is to prepare students by supporting student inquiry learning, allowing students to navigate the dynamic information environment of the 21st century and succeed with information acquisition, evaluation and application.

Our goal is to achieve student information literacy by providing and updating resources and services, giving every student an equal opportunity to learn, enjoy reading and ability to research skills to gain knowledge on a path of life-long learning.

The Library is open from Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:00pm. Closed during Interval.

At lunchtime and afterschool, students will find the Library a welcoming place to read, study, research, complete homework, play board games, meet up with their peers or just relax. At any time the Library staff are willing and able to help you. There is also a duty teacher available at lunchtime.

Students can access their library account from the Sacred Heart College homepage. There is a tab at the bottom called Library OPAC which is also visible at the bottom of this page.
