Our Library

Newton Central School

Our school library boasts an extensive and comprehensive range of books for reading and research. 

Children are encouraged to use the library through a variety of activities. It is open in the lunch time breaks. 

Children are allowed to loan 2 books per week. 

Teachers take their class once a week to the library for a library lesson, returning and issuing books. They often share stories and take a lesson on building library skills and knowledge. 


We show our school values in the wharepukapuka (library) by.. 

Truth Right place, right time and doing the right thing. 

Excellence – I know how to use the library to find books for research and for pleasure.   

Respect I use a quiet voice. I orderly enter, move around and exit the library. I leave the library how I found it and tidy up after myself. 

Aroha I take care of the books, equipment and furniture. I enjoy and value the opportunity to read a wide range of books for research and for pleasure.
