The School values the Library as a safe and inclusive environment for all our students.
The Library is open from 8:15 am until 3:15 pm Monday to Friday and is staffed by a full-time librarian. Our Library is supported by trained student librarians before school and during both break-times. Students are encouraged to volunteer so that they can gain experience in customer service and all aspects of operating and utilising a library.
Our library management system, Accessit, is easy to use, sophisticated, and full of features that our students and staff enjoy. Students and staff have access to their own personal portals that are accessible online. Our collection includes current digital resources that meet the educational needs of all subjects, plus a collection of more than 7,000 electronic and printed books. Our students are encouraged to request titles to be added to our collections; in fact, the majority of books we acquire are student-selected. The Library also provides chromebooks which may be hired by students.
The Geraldine High School Library can be accessed at any time and from any Wi-Fi location by visiting online: nz.accessit.online/GRL00.
