The school houses two separate libraries within its grounds. The Main Library is located on the first floor above the staff room and the 中六图书馆 is located directly opposite the ADT block, adjacent to the music rooms and within close proximity to the 六年级 Common Room.
It is currently managed by Mrs Anna Martine, Librarian and 学习 Resource Manager along with a dedicated team of parent and student volunteers.
Each library stocks a wide selection of resources for each year group and at last count our resources totalled in excess of 11,000本书.
The Main Library is open daily from 10.40 to 11.上午00及12时.40 to 13.40 pm.
The Main Library caters for students in Years 7 to 11 and is open at break and lunchtimes.
It houses a vast array of text and academic books to meet the curriculum requirements of the students and the school. There is also a wide range of fiction books to include classic literature and contemporary and popular authors. The Library also holds Old Olavian archives and memorabilia.
The Main Library stocks daily copies of The Times and The Guardian as well as magazines, journals and periodicals both past and present to peruse through if you wish as well as access to Chessboards and pieces. There are computers and a printer for the students to use for homework or research and a quiet zone for 研究.
