The Library is central to St Albans Secondary College. Library staff work together to provide, maintain, and develop collections of materials to support and enhance the teaching and learning environment, as well as meet the diverse needs of our students. The Library is a space for everyone – open and welcoming to the school community.

We design and organise our physical spaces to ensure the layout works for individual, collaborative, and supported learning. We select our resources for their relevance to the curriculum as well as in response to the needs of our community. We promote our resources and activities to connect students to significant events – past, present, and future – that might otherwise pass them by. We design our purpose with the conscious intention of facilitating teaching and learning, often with students unaware that they are learning. The Library is dynamic, acting on continual reflection and observation, willing to experiment to be even better.

The Library’s online space is available 24/7 and enables access to the catalogue, news and current events resources, as well as teaching and learning guides. EBooks and audiobooks are also available through the Library and can be accessed anywhere and on any device.
