Library

Welcome to the Edenbrook Secondary College Library!

We have recently opened our school library with a range of resources including fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels and biographies, and the collection continues to grow!

We are open every weekday for students before and after school, plus two lunchtimes a week for games and activities.

We currently have a limit of one book per student and it’s yours for two weeks, unless you’d like to renew it.
To borrow a book, bring it to the front desk and let Ms Barker know your name or present your Compass ID card.
To return books please bring them to the front desk upon entry.

We welcome all students to this safe, relaxed, and enjoyable place to discover and grow their love of books.

Our fiction books are categorised by genre in the library making it easy for students to find a style of book they enjoy. You can view our online catalogue below.

We have a monthly delivery of new titles and encourage students to have their say.  Let Ms Barker know of your favourite book if it is not yet in the library or if there’s a new book coming out that we MUST have!

The library hosts fortnightly visits from English and Connect classes to support the curriculum and encourage enjoyment of reading. Every student is also registered with the Premiers Reading Challenge for this year. Students have been provided with their log in details and can log in here.  

We host the Cardinia Youth Services lunchtime visits on a Thursday and have a range of games on offer for students on a Tuesday lunchtime which includes our Year 9 dungeons and dragons club.

It is also home to our first Library Action Team who are planning and developing displays and organising library events. In the future, we look forward to hosting a Book Club and Writers Club.

ePlatform Digital Library now LIVE!

The Edenbrook Library is expanding via ePlatform!
You can now borrow and read a book or listen to an audiobook on any device.

Here’s how…

  1. Visit  https://edenbrooksc.eplatform.co/  to login to your school’s ePlatform digital library or download the ePlatform app from Google Play or Apple. 
  2. Find Libraries – search and select Edenbrook Secondary College
  3. Select a title and simply hit the ‘borrow’ button and you can start reading or listening immediately.
Things to know…

Books are loaned for 2 weeks and are automatically returned to the ‘shelf’ for other users to borrow after this time. Reserves can be made if they are already on loan and you will be notified when the book becomes available. 
Students log in with their Compass credentials.

You can change the way you view the book, change the text, sizing and switch to night mode! 

These options are dyslexic friendly and helpful for students needing some extra support, audio assistance options are available. You can also highlight, search and define new words to improve understanding and help build vocabulary. 

Here is a video tutorial on getting started and how to adjust the reading settings
