BPS School Library

Our school library is a modern flexible learning space and contains a wide collection of picture books, novels and digital resources. Classes participate in a weekly library lesson with our school librarian, where they have the opportunity to borrow books to take home which we strongly encourage.

Parents are asked to ensure that children have a suitable library bag for borrowing.

Book Club

Scholastics Book Club order forms are distributed twice a term. All orders and payment are made online using the Book Club LOOP. Items ordered are delivered to the school for distribution to students. The school receives a substantial credit from all orders made which we use to further stock our library and classroom resources.


Each year all students at Bronte Public School take part in the Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC). The PRC aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely. Students in K-2 complete the PRC with their class and students in 3-6 complete the PRC independently.

Starts from Monday 26 February - 23 August 2024
