St Joseph’s has a well-equipped, computerised library from which all students may borrow each week. We ask that all children have a library bag to protect their books. There is borrowing from Monday to Thursday and parents are encouraged to show an interest in the books that your child borrows. Children also participate in formal library lessons.
Ashton Scholastic Book Club operates within the school, providing families with the opportunity to purchase books and encourage reading at home.
Students participate in the annual Premier’s Reading Challenge, encouraging them to read a wide variety of specially selected books. If students reach their target, they will receive a special certificate from the NSW Premier.
