The Library program at Dandenong North Primary School is used to promote the love of reading, expand the student’s knowledge of texts and resources, and develop their understanding of book features and the Dewey decimal system.
The students are encouraged to borrow library books on a weekly basis, to explore books they might not regularly choose, and to develop their discussion and literacy skills.
The students are exposed to new authors, with a large emphasis placed on books written and illustrated by Australian authors and illustrators.
During the year we hold a ‘Book Fair’ and participate in ‘Book Week’ activities in the library to further promote the love of reading.
Students in Year Prep, Year 1, Year s-3-6 are particpating in our Library program.
