Welcome back!

We welcome new students to the Auroa School library at the start of another year. Just to let you know that the school library is open Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 3:00pm. So please call in and visit our space or spend some time there with your child. Please have items issued before you take them from the library. Children can borrow up to four books and have two weeks to return them to the library. Make sure you return them to the library by the due date. We have a wide range of books your child can issue. We expect children to be responsible for the care and protection of our lovely library books. All children should have a safe method (book bag, plastic bag, separate pocket in their school bag) to transport books to and from school, away from drink bottles and lunch boxes. We hope you come and enjoy all your library has to offer you - see you soon.
