The St Nicholas School Stanyarne Burrows Library supports the needs of teachers and provides an atmosphere where information skills, inquiry and information literacy are emphasized.  We seek to develop independent learners and life-long readers who contribute positively to the school and our global community.

The Burrows Library collection includes approximately 9000 books and also supports digital literacy with 12 iPads that are available for use during library classes. Our catalog, Alexandria allows students to search the collection by  AR level, Award Winners, New Books as well as by author, title and subject. In addition, a variety of databases, periodicals and reference resources are available.

The Burrows Library is available for use during the school day and regular library classes are scheduled weekly. Parents who would like to volunteer are encouraged to contact the librarian.
