The Illawarra Grammar School Library, located in the Goodhew Research Centre, is available to all members of the school community.

Our mission is to inspire and encourage a lifelong love of reading and learning whilst supporting the School’s curricular and co-curricular activities.

Library resources include printed books, electronic books, audio books, magazines, newspapers, games, and moving media. We encourage students to read for pleasure utilising an array of popular magazines, fiction, picture books, and graphic novels. The non-fiction collection and online database resources provide students and teachers with materials that have been carefully selected to support the curriculum and encourage self-directed learning.

Our teacher librarians support students and teachers in developing information and digital fluency skills.

Parents are always welcome to use the library and may register to borrow items. We also have available a small ‘Parent Collection’ that includes books on parenting, literacy, reading, and health and well-being.

The library catalogue is publicly available via the Internet and can be accessed from any computer at school or home. Students and staff can log in to the catalogue using their school login to access additional protected features.
