Cobram Anglican Grammar students have delved into the world of books and libraries after getting an in-depth tour of Cobram’s new library.

Head of Junior School Mary Swoffer said as part of the school’s Junior School Community Engagement program, classes had visited the new Cobram Library to celebrate its official opening.

‘‘Students have enjoyed a tour around the library where they saw a special area where members of the public can visit, look through a range of magazines, newspapers, and even watch cricket, football or the news on a television,’’ Ms Swoffer said.

‘‘The students looked through the audio book section, where they heard that this type of book is very popular with truck drivers, grandmas who knit as well as those older people in our community whose eye sight is deteriorating, but they can still experience the joy of books.

‘‘The students were surprised with the huge range of items to borrow which included: large print books, grown-ups’ books, information books for children, fiction, non-fiction, picture story books, biographies, easy-read children’s magazines, graphic novels, and joke books.’’

Students also learned how the new automated borrowing and returning technology worked.
