CHS Library – Ngurambang-gu Garrandarang- Home to books 

Condobolin High School library welcomes students, teachers and staff, and encourages them to enjoy the facilities the library has to offer. The library houses a diverse collection of fiction and non-fiction books, a learning space, a computer bank, a class set of laptops and a set for use in the library, a breakout room – “the fishbowl” - and the podcast studio. Students and staff also have access to e-books and audio books through the Central West Consortium Wheelers platform. LearnPath guides and the Britannica School database will be available through the library catalogue in 2022.

Our full time Teacher Librarian, Linda McHugh (MEdn TL), has rejuvenated the fiction collection and is slowly updating our reference and non-fiction collections. This year the collection improvement focus has been on Indigenous titles, particularly Wiradjuri stories and texts, picture books, Manga and graphic novels, and dyslexia-friendly fonts. Updates to collections are publicised through the school newsletter. Library events and initiatives are also publicised through the newsletter and on Facebook.

Ms McHugh provides reading and research support for class groups and individual students and coordinates the CHS homework centre, Wambinya (Wiradjuri for ‘support’) on Thursday afternoons after school. Library Assistant, Caroline Gross and Technical Support Officer, Tarmia Haworth, support the provision of library services. 

The library hosts students studying distance education courses and publicises events and opportunities for students including writing competitions and community events. We also conduct and host competitions, like the Children’s Book Council of Australia poster colouring in competition and the Central West Wheelers Consortium Trivia Challenge. The library facilities are available for school community meetings. 

The library is a member of the Australian School Libraries Association and Ms McHugh welcomes any suggestions from students, staff and community members to improve the library’s collections and services.
