Library Services

Sacred Heart has a modern, well-resourced library and information centre. A full-time registered librarian and a part-time library assistant, both passionate about books and reading, enjoy connecting with students to help them research, source information and recommend authors and titles.

Welcome to the Library

The Sacred Heart College library supports students in their learning across all curriculum areas by providing printed and digital resources that are appropriate to their needs, interests and abilities and promotes the value of reading for pleasure.  

The library catalogue Access-It is available to students 24/7 and allows access to our print collection. Students and staff can log into Access-It to search our resources, renew their books online or reserve books. 

The Library is a phone-free zone and food and drink are not permitted. We have a large collection of games and puzzles for students to enjoy as well as colouring and other activities to promote student well-being.
