Library Learning

Our Nano Nagle Library is the knowledge heart of the College. It is a vital partner in the delivery of our quality teaching and learning processes and provides opportunities for learning, research and assessment beyond the classroom.

The ability to find, evaluate and use information effectively is an essential skill in providing a positive impact on learning achievement. The Nano Nagle Library, designed with connectivity and the rapidly developing technology of 21st Century learning at the forefront, encourages students to broaden their exposure to a wide range of digital and print information resources and to apply higher order thinking skills in choosing the most relevant information. Fiction, non-fiction and current, high-interest literature support the development of thinking, life-long learning and a love of reading in general. An abundance of magazines, newspapers and useful resources for both personal development and career education are widely available. The ‘Book Club’ literature group meet regularly throughout each Term.

The Think Project

The Think Project is a literature-based initiative led by St Rita's College, in partnership with Riverbend Books. The project promotes a literacy-rich culture through a calendar of events that encourage a love of literature and creative thinking. The Think Project provides opportunities for our community to engage with writers, illustrators, public speakers, creatives and other literature enthusiasts through, book events and Q & As, workshops, conferences, clubs and other networking events. Our Expert Series and workshops provide space for courageous information consumers and creators to flourish.
