Our Vision

The WCS Library is dedicated to fostering a love of reading and learning.  We strive to provide resources and activities that will support students and staff to become effective and discriminating life-long users of information.  Our focus is on reading both for pleasure and information seeking.  We encourage all students to borrow from our Library.

Our Collection

We maintain a balanced and current collection with a diverse range of materials which meet the teaching and learning needs of students and staff.  Our books are carefully selected to meet students reading interests and abilities.  The curriculum is supported through the purchase of materials which are linked with NSW Syllabus documents.  The Library maintains a large collection of resources including Fiction and Nonfiction books, magazines and extensive resources for Teachers.

Our Catalogue

Students can access our full catalogue via their DE Student Portal by click on the School Library link Oliver Library.

Borrowing AND Lost or Damaged Books

Students have a two week loan period and may borrow up to five (5) Library books.  Overdue notices are emailed to families regularly throughout each term.  Any unresolved book loan can be paid for at the front office student desk and a copy of the receipt furnished to the Library and taken off student name.

Opening Times

The Library is OPEN weekdays from before school until 2.30 with the exception of Tuesday and Thursday junior recess.

Finding a good book

Follow our Library Instagram @wadalbacslibrary to read about new books and old favourites.  Here you will also find links to author web sites and other relevant literature to read about.  Also our upcoming Library activities will appear via IG!!  Student requests may be completed at the front circulation desk of the library.


The Library stocktake will occur bi-annualy  during Term 4.  Borrowing, including text book borrowing, will stop and recommence Week 10.

School Holidays

We encourage our students to borrow books for reading over the school holidays. Further encouragement to join and borrow from the local public library which offer a range of books, magazines and audio books is an excellent way to keep our students motivated about their reading.
