The Library is for everyone at Portadown College. Its role is to support learning and teaching and it is a whole school resource for study, research and recreational reading. It is located at the entrance to the Sixth Form Centre and is used throughout the day by Sixth Form students during their study periods. However, it is available to all students before school starts, during break and lunch times, and after school.
The Library has an up-to-date and relevant stock to support all areas of the curriculum at PC. Over the past few years, a considerable amount of money has been invested in the Library to stimulate and encourage reading for pleasure and to provide learning resources in a wide range of formats to support and respond to changes in the curriculum.
There is an impressive collection of the latest fiction and non-fiction, 300+ DVDs, a wide range of daily newspapers and magazines and a selection of great reference items. The College Librarian, Mrs Hurst, is always available to provide advice, information and support with study. All students are encouraged to suggest items for purchase and help with the selection of materials for the Library.
