An inclusive, dynamic, information rich learning environment providing students and staff access to a range of resources 24/7.
CSPD school libraries are physical and digital places of inquiry and reading.
They provide access to a range of resources that help students on their learning journey and help inspire purposeful learning.
Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learner dispositions and capabilities to cultivate a culture of curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.
Our Library - The Knowledge Hub
The physical library space at Santa Sophia runs over two levels, level 2 servicing our younger students in the School of Curiosity and level 3 dedicated to students in the Schools of Connection and Challenge.
The Knowledge Hub is open Monday through Friday during lunch and recess for students to borrow, create, socialise with friends and play. The Knowledge Hub portal has information, resources and research tips for students and their families.
Teacher Librarians are on hand to assist students with locating quality information from relatable sources and ensure it is used in an ethical manner. All library staff have a great passion for literature and are on hand to provide help to students to find their next ‘great read’.
Students have access to the eLibrary - the digital gateway to a range of quality online resources that encourage and enhance reading and support inquiry learning.
The virtual library gives access to an electronic bookshelf and database access for students and staff.
