The Resource Centre is the hub of The Arundel State School. It is located in a central position and is visited by all classes. An excellent collection of both print and electronic resources is available for both teachers and children. If you require any assistance please see the library staff Mrs McKay, Mrs McCallum or one of the helpful library monitors.

The library offers students
the opportunity to purchase books through Scholastic Book Club, with two issues
per term. Brochures go home via each
student’s classroom teacher. All
students now receive the same brochure which includes all books available. Ordering and payment is via LOOP only at www.scholastic.com.au/LOOP. Parents register and then order via the student's name and class. Ordering is also possible on an iPhone or
iPad via the Scholastic LOOP app. This
is the only form of payment we accept.
We do not put through manual orders, therefore it is not necessary to
return a form to school. If the books
are a surprise and you would like to collect them, please contact the library
and let us know.
