Are you a keen Year 9 or 10 reader?

If yes – The Centre for Youth Literature is currently looking for bookish Melbourne teens in years 9 & 10 to take part in our first ever Dog’s Advisory Board (DAB).

The DAB is an after-school program that meets at the State Library Victoria once a week to discuss all things Inside a Dog, from design to content to programming, and to talk about books and writing. Weekly board meetings will involve everything from brainstorming sessions to writing workshops to author visits, and will be supervised by staff from the Centre for Youth Literature. The program will take place over terms 2 & 3, and is entirely free.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in this new program please direct them to Inside a Dog for more information! https://insideadog.com.au/ or contact Samantha Forge, Programs Officer at Centre for Youth Literature

Come check out the revamped GFL!

After a considerable amount of effort and with the grateful assistance of some strong hands, the start of 2017 has seen the revamp of the Gregory Fish Library, our senior school library, fondly known as the GFL.

The makeover has indeed given new meaning to the term ‘flipped classroom’ as quite literally, the mass of student desks on one side of the old library have swapped places with the shelves holding the wide range of resources in our various book collections.  Resources are easy to locate and a friendly library staff member is always around to lend a hand.

We are open for business as always: Monday-Thursday 8.00am-6.30pm and Friday 8.00am-4.00pm (except for morning recess daily & Wednesday afternoon when we close from 12.30-3.30pm).

Come visit and check out our new look!
