Library

The library is located in S-Block in room S4

It has a wide selection of books for reading and information. The library is connected to the school’s wireless high-speed broadband to support Chromebooks.

The library uses the acclaimed Access-it Library management programme to check on the items we have available. Students also see what items they have out and when they are due back. Hornby High School is currently working on developing Accessit to become an accessible link you can access from home, through our website.

There is a wide range of reading and research material for all reading abilities. Graphic Novels and Quick Reads include books suitable for those with Dyslexia. The books available are targeted to provide enjoyable reading.

Fiction and Senior Fiction titles provide exciting stories to foster reading skills. Senior Fiction titles are especially selected to meet NCEA requirements and feature stronger themes.

The Non-fiction information books support classroom learning as well as providing interesting material for those who prefer to read about the world around them. There is a large collection of books to support Maori studies interest.

We are proud to be a diverse, friendly school and a place where the needs of each individual student are at the forefront of everything we do. We are proud to be a school where all students can make their mark and set their direction for life after secondary school.
