Library

The MBBC Library aims to provide a wide range of resources support the curriculum and recreational reading needs of students and staff. The Library has operated in its current location for more than 11 years and will relocate to its new home during 2018 – how exciting for our College community!

Visit https://www.givenow.com.au/mbbclibrarybuilding to contribute to this important project and be a part of our story. You can also watch your gift grow via the time-lapse video below.

 

The new (much larger) library will be a centre of inquiry, discovery and creativity and will become the central learning hub at MBBC, incorporating library resource areas, group work areas and IT facilities. Libraries are invaluable spaces for learning, innovating and reflecting and we’re thrilled to have this exciting project underway, inspired by the opportunities this new space will offer our students. In the words of Albert Einstein “The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”

SCHOLASTIC BOOKCLUB

MBBC Library offers parents and boys the opportunity to purchase books. There are eight issues each year (two per term). Printed Catalogues are sent home for perusal, then all ordering is done online through LOOP (see ‘LOOP_How to order_new’ under Related Documents). Purchases are delivered to students at the College, or parents are notified when their goods arrive – handy if hiding surprises from curious children!
