Items to be Catalogued

Books and resources purchased from library and school budgets including but not inclusive to book fairs, parent council funding and special grants are all permitted. We will consider items that are donated or used however we will only catalogue  these items that have been published less than 10 years ago.

We reserve the right to refuse cataloging requests. Donated materials should be reviewed according to the Provision of Learning Resources just like any other resources you purchase for your library. You have a responsibility to reject donations that are not relevant to the curriculum or are not appropriate for the school community.
