Welcome to Mount Aspiring College Library in 2019

As the college grows so does the library attendance. It is great!

Lots of new books await their next readers on the shelves and the librarians are ready to help with books and information inquiries.

Students can borrow up to 4 books for 3 weeks. Remember to record your book loan at the issue desk, either filling in the self-issue form or the librarian will scan it for you.

The library is open from 8.30 to 4 every school day, including at interval and lunchtime. Please eat before or after you come in as books don’t like sticky fingers!

The library is a great place to relax and find quietness in a very busy college. So please come here to read or study or chat quietly and respect the peace.

Enjoy reading! Enjoy your library!

Check out the library display

Here at Mount Aspiring college library, there is a prominent display area right across the entrance.

Librarians hand-pick fiction and non-fiction books on a specific theme, usually in line with current events of the college.

Displays invite you to discover books you may not have looked for, yet might interest you, or be useful to you.

Displays are changed regularly so always give the display a glance and pick up a good book!

Audiobooks

The library holds a small collection of audiobooks and has the corresponding books.

The town library also has a collection of audiobooks that we can borrow for our students for free.

If you look for a specific title that we don’t have, then remember that audiobooks are fairly cheap, so you can buy and download them on your own device.

It is also always worth checking on Wheelers or BookDepository.
Happy book listening!
