Hawker Area School Community Library
Hi, I’m Ailsa Green and this is Rosie Luckraft and together we make up the library team for Hawker School Community Library. Also working alongside us is Steve Green,the IT technician for school. You will often see him helping out in the library.
I use the phrase Caught Between the Covers because I believe reading is so important for all. I want to catch children reading, i.e., caught between the covers of a book. The following article gives reasons why reading is so important, not just for children, but for all of us.
Ailsa is the Teacher/Librarian and Rosie is the Community Library Assistant. Together, we manage the running of Hawker School Community Library. A school community library is a joint use library, meaning that it is open to both the public and the school (though this changes at times with the issues surrounding COVID!).

Book Week Resources
Year 2020 -
April 1988 saw the school Library become available to the public when it was opened by the Premier John Bannon as the Hawker School Community Library. This facilitated making resources more available for the public, providing a more personal service and enabling students and public to access a wider choice of books and a variety of resources. All students are encouraged to borrow frequently from our community school library. Students are encouraged to participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge and the National Simultaneous Story time each year.
Our Library is a School Community Library and is open to the community during and after school hours. The library contains a wide selection of children’s and adult’s non-fiction and fiction titles and we encourage parents to come to the library to choose books with their children and for themselves. Free public Internet is available. The public can access the Internet through the Library wireless connection. Our Library staff will happily assist.
