Bilinba Resource Centre

The Bilinba Resource Centre is open for borrowing and quizzing every morning at 8:20.

Students can also visit the library at second break for borrowing, reading, games, lego and quizzing.

Students may borrow two books at a time and must have a library bag to borrow.

Students are encouraged to deposit their returns in the return chute. All classes visit the library for borrowing, once a week.  The Centre boasts one of the largest school collections on the Gold Coast.  Students are encouraged to partake in either the School's home reading program or the Lexile reading program.  Parent volunteers help to facilitate the home reading program, conducting borrowing between 8:50 and 10:00 a.m. each day.

Parent volunteers are always welcome and can make contact with the front desk library staff at any time or by calling Ph. 55 196366.

Opening Hours: 8:20 until 3:10 every day. Closed at first break. Open second break for student borrowing; reading; games and quizzing.

Borrowing

Students must have a library bag to borrow. Please no plastic bags.

Students must use a shelf marker when choosing a book from the shelf.

2 books may be borrowed for a period of 14 days.

Lexile Program

As soon as students show that they can read and comprehend texts at Level 25 (they have completed home reading program) they can move on to Lexile Reading. Students in this program read novels and answer questions about those novels on-line to gain points and awards. Certificates, ribbons and medals are awarded for milestones and significant effort in novel (chapter book) reading.

Book Fairs

We now run one Book Fair each year, in August. Money raised is used to buy much needed resources for the Bilinba Centre.

Volunteers

We always need help with covering books. Any parents who have some spare time to help cover books, this would be greatly appreciated.
