With 10-12,000 fiction books alone in the Arthur Holt Library, the idea of selecting a book may seem daunting to any reader. But how can you choose book when you have so much choice?
The current Bookflix display is a great place to start, this display highlights our books in our collection which align to this year’s science week theme: Destination Moon: more missions, more science. Our displays also showcase new books added to the collection as well as books which have been recently return making it a good way for students and staff to gain an understanding of the breath of the fiction collection. This display is currently located near the library entrance, on top of the General Fiction shelving so make sure you check it out.
Browsing our recently returned collection is another strategy to assist both staff and students to select a book. The display showcases books they have been recently read and provides an insight to the popular books in our Library.
Browse by Genre
Our fiction collection is currently shelved by genre making finding the next best book in Fantasy a whole lot easier. Use the map below as a starting point, it shows were each genre is located and it may be useful if your looking at trying something new.
Our Instagram feed includes book of the month, selected by the Year 12 Prefects. This is a great way to access book reviews from students in the school community. In the Year 7 Wide Reading Program, Year 7 English students have been busy populating our catalogue system Infinity with a book review of their Year 7 Wide Reading Book. This essentially allows students and staff to use Infiniti both a tool to locate a book in the collection and to read book reviews written buy a member of the school. If you would like have you book review featured in Infiniti, please speak to a member of the Library Team.
