eSchool Library

There is a library at both Launceston and Hobart campuses. Each campus has a wide range of resources to support the curriculum and recreational reading needs of all students.

Accessing Resources
  • Access to the Library at each campus or online through Fronter. There are over 20,000 items to borrow including Fiction books, Non-fiction books, Kits, CDs, DVDs, Games and construction sets, reading schemes (levelled readers), literacy materials (guided reading and paired readers), LOTE resources, online resources and equipment (e.g. digital cameras, iPods).
    There is also access to online databases such as World Fact Book and a Maths Dictionary for Kids.
Borrowing resources
  • New students enrolled with the eSchool are posted a library-generated number which enables them to borrow resources and place holds on materials on TALIS (our online library catalogue).
  • Years K-3 students may borrow 30 items at one time and Years 4-10 up to 20 items.
  • Students can view the collection and borrow items from their local campus.
  • Most items are loaned for 6 weeks.
  • Returned materials may be posted directly to us, returned to us at Onsites or left at one of our drop-off points (see below)
  • Extensions of loans should be negotiated with the issuing teacher, either at the time of borrowing or near the due date.
  • Some items are issued on a year loan basis.
  • If an item is lost, students should let the Library and their teacher know. Students may be billed for lost resources.
  • All learning materials should be returned by December of each year, except for primary maths kits which may be retained for the following year.
  • Exiting students will be requested to return all items and may be billed for lost items.
  • It is important that items are returned on time so that they are available for other students.
