Welcome to the Penrith Anglican College Junior Library!

Two dynamic spaces.

We are delighted to provide two exciting spaces for students to explore reading and enjoy Library classes.

Our L Centre Library provides a wonderful range of picture books, kits, chapter books and information books supporting our young adventurers as they embark on their lifelong learning journey.

Our D Centre Library provides an awesome selection of stories in every genre. This library guides our extraordinary Year 3 and 4 students through the next stage of their expedition into the world of books. It contains a great range of fiction, non-fiction to cater to the students’ growing curiosity for the world around them plus graphic novels and picture books for older readers.

Both libraries are open at lunchtime on different days for students to read and play games, borrow books and share quiet activities.

Library classes are held every two weeks with their focus on developing a love of reading as well as gaining the skills required to research with accuracy and wisdom.

Penrith Anglican College Library also provides our borrowers access to e-books and databases such as World Book Online,as well as Story Box Library for our younger readers.

2022 Premier Reading Challenge

The Premier’s Reading Challenge is open to NSW students from Kindergarten to Year 10 each year to encourage the development of a lifelong love of reading.

At Penrith Anglican College we energetically promote the Challenge to our students, and actively assist them to select challenge listed books, track their choices and submit their completed reading logs.

The 2022 Challenge commenced on 28 February and closes on 19 August, so grab a book and start reading!

Book Week Parade

Each year the College holds a Book Parade for Pre-K to Year 6 in conjunction with National Simultaneous Storytime. Students dress as their favourite book character or follow the Book Week theme.
