At Buderim Mountain State School we believe literacy is essential to children’s development. We aim to foster a love of reading in all students by providing a diverse array of reading materials in a friendly and ambient environment.

Utilising funding from the Federal Government, our new purpose-built library was opened in 2010. The modern facility contains over 17,000 resources and is a source of both joy and education to all students.
Each year, there are approximately 30,000 loans to students and 25,000 to staff. All classes have a set borrowing time during class time so students can regularly access loan books. Students are also allowed to borrow books before and after school and during lunch.
Books can be borrowed for a maximum of two weeks, and are limited as follows:
Prep-Year 2: Two books
Years 3-6: Three books (including one magazine)
Lunchtime use:
All students from Years 1-6 can visit the library during lunch between 11:10-11:30 am. During this time they can participate in activities like reading, chess, drawing and board games.
Library Helpers:
Many students with a passion for literacy will enjoy spending their free time at the library. To recognise and encourage their interest, students in Years 5 and 6 are eligible to be Library Helpers, and perform duties before school or at lunch time.
