Working together to widen horizons

People often ask, “If we have the internet, why do we still need librarians and libraries?”
It’s true that the information landscape has changed. It is easier than ever to create a work and publish it to the world and with a tap of a button, we access information from anywhere at any time. But actually, that’s why librarians are more vital than ever.
The library is like a candy store where students can find a new novel, make a new product, or chase their curiosity.
In a world of constant noise and shallow distraction, libraries are a refuge where teenagers grow in wisdom.
Librarians inspire creativity, critical thinking, empathy, and systems thinking. In other words, they help our children become the kind of people we want them to be.
Here are some of the things librarians do:
The Library has excellent wifi and provides desktop computers and laptops available for genuine school work and study only. Students may use their Library card to borrow a laptop to use in the Library only from the circulation desk.
Students must leave their Library card with libray staff at the desk then retrieve their card when the laptop is returned in good condition. Students who do not bring a Library card may use the desktop computers only. Students may also bring your own device to connect to the free Wi-Fi (DETNSW) in the Library using your DET login and password. Desktop computers are for genuine work, study and research only. Students need to use their own headphones when accessing audio visual material on computers.
