Library lessons are held Monday to Friday for Years Prep to 4. 
The library is open before school Tuesday to Friday from 8:15am and every second play break. 
Students are encouraged to borrow books during library lessons and during break times.  All loans are for two weeks. The number of books borrowed by the students varies depending on their year level.

Year 1 students: 1 book
Years 2 to 6: 2 books
Prep students borrow books from their classroom library. 
A library bag will help to protect the books from damage, however is not required to borrow.   
As part of Raceview’s SPORTy expectations, we encourage our students to treat the library space and books with respect.  Your cooperation in seeing that books are returned on time would be appreciated. We understand that life can become busy, therefore if your child forgets to bring their book back by the return date, please encourage them to return it as soon as possible to the library. Students will be unable to borrow until their overdue book is returned.  As a reminder, we will send home notices when books are overdue. In circumstances where the book is lost or damaged, parents are asked to pay a set fee of $5 to go towards a replacement.  Please remember to return all library books if your child transfers to another school.
 
Throughout the year, Raceview students are encouraged to participate in different activities run by the Raceview library staff or the Ipswich District Teacher Librarian Network.  Annual events are Book Week, Premier’s Reading Challenge, Ipswich Poetry Feast and The Readers Cup competition.
