Our Library is a wonderfully inviting and inspiring resource hub that supports our students, teachers and school community. We provide recommendations, loans and reference services, basic IT support and a wellbeing space for everyone.
The Library is a flexible learning and social area. It consists of a full computer lab and a classroom with netbooks. The VCE study area provides a quiet space and resources for extended learning. There are reading zones dedicated to Primary, Middle & Later Years students plus lounge areas for small group work. The Literacy Learning Centre provides students with assistance for reading and activities. Outside of class time, we enjoy seeing students study, play games, discuss, read and relax. It is spacious but with cosy corners for everyone from Preps to VCE.
New resources, selected with the assistance of staff and student input, are regularly displayed and are inclusive of all reading needs. Along with the usual items, we have comics, graphic novels, magazines, audio books and study guides. The Library regularly runs literacy based events and craft activities for students and staff.
We are well resourced and supported by the whole school community.
The Macleod College Library is a resources hub and the community heart of our school.

With knowledgeable staff that are always there to offer assistance.
Renovations & Upgrades
The Library staff and members of the school community have updated the magnificent light filled areas over recent years. Our Library has an exceptional range of resources, lovely areas to sit and read, learning spaces with up to date technology and great places to relax. With fresh furnishings the Library really is the hub of our school community.
The National Simultaneous Storytime book ‘Alpacas with Maracas’ by Matt Cosgrove was read by over a million students during Library Week in 2019. The primary students attended craft sessions in the library to make their own maracas for our performance of the book. In collaboration with the music department, our year 8 and 12 students brought Macca and Al’s world to life and the primary students enjoyed being part of the performance too.
Alpacas with Maracas
When Libraria comes under attack the Macleod College storm troopers come to our aide. This is a fun event held each year for primary and secondary students as well as staff.
May the 4th be with you.
