St Augustine's College
An education in the marist tradition
Gildas Centre - Library
The College library is made up of different areas with many and varied resources.
It is a multi-faceted complex with quiet reading areas, a lecture theatrette, tutorial and seminar spaces and dedicated rooms for class, small group and individual study. It is a busy place and a visitor could witness in one short session, students studying intensely in one area, playing chess in another, and debating or attending a foreign language tutorial elsewhere.
Skilled and resourceful librarians are available in the Gildas Centre. All have extensive teaching experience in a variety of subjects offering students guidance, insight and resource assistance with their assignments and technical questions.
The visual aesthetics throughout the Gildas with its myriad of displays is a testament to the imagination and pride taken in making the Gildas Centre a quiet, modern space for study or leisure.
