Welcome to our BHPS Library 2023
CONGRATULATIONS to Sophia and Amber on becoming our 2023 Library Leaders!
Every student deserves a well-resourced and easily accessible library. The tie between libraries and academic success is well documented. Accessit helps to engage students in our school library catalogue, supporting them in their reading and discovery.
Our BHPS Library uses the management system Accessit. You can find the link to Accessit at the top of our school website (Quick Links) or you can save the following link:
Students and families can access our Library from home or school on any device to search through our Library catalogue or put a book on hold. By clicking on Guest in the top righthand corner in Accessit, the login menu will drop down.
Student’s log in details are their Compass ID/CASES ID (eg. BEN0099) and password school for Prep to Grade 2 and Boronia for grade 3 – 6.
Once logged in using your child’s log in details, a dashboard will appear with lots of information on our school Library, a clip on how to use the webapp, new books or series to explore and a Library timetable. When you click on your child’s name you will find your child’s borrowing history and importantly when current loans are due. This main page will be updated regularly so be sure to check in often!
Overdue notices will be emailed directly to Parent A (listed on student enrolments), on a weekly basis. We appreciate books being returned promptly and if a book is lost, a $10 fee will be charged to help cover the cost of a replacement.
Prep students can borrow 1 Library book for a 1 week loan
Year 1 and 2 can borrow up to 2 books for 2 weeks
Year 3 to 6 can borrow up to 4 books for 4 weeks
All students must have a Library Bag to bring books home.
I look forward to a wonderful year of Library events including our Scholastic Book Clubs each term, Book Week and Book Character dress up day, National Simultaneous Storytime and a special author visit.
If you have any questions or would like some assistance with Accessit, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
