The Howick College library supports students in their learning across all curriculum areas by providing printed and digital resources that are appropriate to their needs, interests and abilities.
The library catalogue Access-It is available to students 24/7 and allows access to over 7,000 curated websites and electronic documents which are in addition to the print collection.
The library also promotes the value of reading for pleasure. Reading is a skill that must be practised and reading for pleasure enhances the abilities needed by students when they are reading for academic purposes. The library currently maintains a large fiction collection which is intended to appeal to a diverse range of readers.
