Welcome to the William Dean Public School Library.

The library’s mission is to provide a well-resourced, inviting and inclusive environment which promotes a love of literature and effectively fosters the development of student information literacy skills.

Children from Kinder may borrow 1 book each time they visit the library.Year 1 & Year 2 may borrow 2 books each time.Children from Year 3 & Year 4 may borrow 3 books at a time.Year 5 & Year 6 students may borrow up to 4 books on each occasion.Students visit the Library once each week for Library lessons but may
borrow as often as they wish if they are avid readers. They must however return
books before new ones can be loaned.Students are encouraged to choose a suitable book themselves as this develops
their tastes and skills.
