The W. M. Dent Library is an integral part of the School’s academic program.
The Library contains a vast number of resources equipping the boys with the necessary tools to conduct extensive research or to study, read or play stimulating board games such as chess.
The Bookmark Café area of the Library is a popular spot for students who enjoy reading the daily newspapers and weekly country newspapers or watching news events on ABC 24. Like any good café, the Bookmark Café is equipped with a hot chocolate machine with the currency for using the machine being the reading of books.
The Library also contains a designated area for recreational reading with lounges, ottomans and quiet reading spots providing a pleasant and popular reading environment. The Library has a large magazine collection catering to academic and popular interests such as history, science, sport, fishing, motorbike riding, and agriculture. Recognising the importance of literacy and reading in the lives of boys, the W.M. Dent Library is also open every Sunday afternoon during term-time. The Library is open for parents and all students who wish to access the learning resources or simply to experience the joy of reading.
In addition to Sunday afternoons, the Library is open from 7:30am to 5:00pm Monday to Thursday and on Friday from 7:30am to 4:00pm.
