The library here at Herschel Grammar School is warm, welcoming and well resourced to support the highest possible levels of education through our provision of information literacy, delivering and supporting information literacy skills, as well as promoting reading for pleasure.

Any students in need of assistance in searching for, or using, any of the abundant resources our library has to offer, can seek aid from our library staff - Mrs Downs and her prefects.
