One of the main goals of our library is to support and engage the Mosman Prep community in a culture of reading that extends beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to see reading as central not only to the learning they are doing at school, but as an integral habit that will ensure their understanding of the world.

In the same way, our students learn research practices that support the idea that learning is a lifelong endeavour. Boys learn that research is a process that is not necessarily linear, and that it requires resilience and tenacity. Research projects are always linked to classroom practice and curriculum.

The library calendar includes a range of activities including author talks, The Premier’s Reading Challenge, ALIA’s National Simultaneous Storytime and Book Week activities. Outside of library lessons, boys are invited to visit at lunch times where books, drawing material, board games, card games, Lego, Duplo, chess and puzzles are available.

Library Lunch opening times

Junior Primary: Monday and Tuesday 12:45pm – 1:10pm
Senior Primary: Wednesday and Thursday 1:20pm – 1:40pm

Finally, the library aims to support the Mosman Prep community with a range of teaching, learning and recreational resources. These include physical and digital resources, and include our subscription to World Book Online. Access to this resource, as well as a list of helpful websites for parents and teachers regarding reading and technology, can be found below:
