New Opening Times
With the change of term we have a few changes to who uses the Library before and after school for co-curriculars. Due to this, we have new opening times, please see below. We would love to welcome you and your son to space to share in the love of reading.
Many of you would remember seeing Deb Abela come and visit us at Trinity to share her wonderful stories. Deb has a new book out and is doing a book launch at Gleebooks on Saturday 13th of August at 4pm. If you loved her stories, we strongly recommend you attend to hear about her latest book. More information and RSVP details can be found on the Gleebooks Website.
Huey the Bookbot
We are trialing a new service in the Prep Library called Huey the Bookbot. Huey is an interactive robot chat function that helps students find new book suggestions. Huey is a chatbot that requires no logins or personal information, students can interact with Huey, and he will recommend books from our Library collections based on their age, reading ability and interests. He can be found on our Canvas page. Huey is still a new feature, so we would love to hear your feedback.

How To Be A Coder by Kiki Porttman
Did you know we have so many wonderful STEAM books in the Library?
This fun and colourful book explores how to code different skills both with and without a computer. In this book you will learn all about the functions of code and how to apply this to cooking, crafting, dancing and developing your own Scratch animations.
