Library & e-Resources

Townsville Grammar School Library provides a well-resourced and welcoming learning hub, promoting a love of literature and fostering the development of information skills for life-long learning.

The school motto Bonus Intra Melior Exi is closely linked to the Library’s mission of providing a collection to serve it users, both staff and students. The library houses a selection of resources in a range of formats, to suit its users’ needs. Our library is home to a selection of Young Adult (YA) and Senior Fiction books, non-fictions books, reference books, magazines, graphic novels, illustrated picture books, ebooks, audio books, databases and more.

Both Junior School Campuses have modern libraries with an extensive selection of fiction and non-fiction books for children of primary school ages.
