Welcome to the SDPS Library
The Sutherland Dianella library is packed full of interesting and exciting books for all ages. Our staff regularly update titles and series so that your children have access to the best possible range of literature.
Classes regularly provide displays of their work for our Library, so it is always filled with bright and colourful displays.
Each class has a set library time each week.
Students are permitted to borrow most books for up to two consecutive weeks, giving them enough time to enjoy novels and larger reference books.
We adhere to a strict no library bag = no borrowing policy, so we ask parents to take note of their class schedule and ensure that library books and bags come to school on your child’s library day.
Lost or damaged books
Our library operates on a tight budget, so if a book is lost or returned damaged, the school will invoice the student’s parent/guardian for the cost of replacement. Please note that replacement books must be purchased through our approved suppliers, and we do not accept replacement books purchased by individuals.
Students will not be allowed to borrow library books until invoices are settled.
Sutherland Dianella believes strongly in promoting literature and reading. As part of this, we participate in the annual The Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Week.
The theme for 2021 is "Old Worlds, new worlds, other worlds". We look forward to celebrating the event this year with our annual Book Week dress up parade!
