E-Books are here and it’s Summer Reading Permit time

Bayfield now has access to over 1000 e-books. Pop into the library to find out how you can access these. We encourage students to keep reading through the rest of the term and right through the holidays. If you would like to be able to borrow books from our library you need to collect and complete a Summer Reading Permit, this will allow you to issue as many books as you would like to be returned when school starts back in 2017. In the past students have found these an ideal time to read an entire series or to try out a new author.

We have had lots of prospective families come through the library during Open Night and we have just celebrated a very successful Library Week.

To help get us in the Olympic mood we now have up our Olympics display with a medal totals board which we are updating daily.






This  year marks 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare. Countries all over the world are marking this anniversary with special exhibitions and productions of his work. Here in the library we have a display highlighting some of the books we have relating to Shakespeare. We have also compiled some information about the wealth of words and phrases that either originated with Shakespeare of were made popular by him.
