Library at Loreto College Foxrock
Our comfortable, spacious library is located on the first floor and is easily accessible to all.
It provides a welcoming environment in which students and staff can read, study, conduct research and produce reports. Its purpose is to promote reading for pleasure, to nurture the development of independent learning, to support the curriculum by providing access to information in all its forms, and to maintain ongoing collaborative initiatives with staff members across subject areas to enhance the provision of engaging learning experiences.
The library is open throughout the school day until 4.30pm. Students may use the library during break and lunch times.
The library has 12 workstations along with a supply of laptops.
WiFi is available.
Library management is fully automated and we use the OLIVER library management software system.
There is a scanner, laminator, copy/printer & colour printer. Fitted data projector and screen enable the space to be used for viewings and talks.
The library therefore serves as a resource centre, an information centre, a learning centre, a viewing centre and a production centre.
