The Servite College Library is named for Blessed John Angelo Porro, a Servite friar who was born in Milan in 1451. John spent his time in quiet contemplation and prayer growing in his love of the Lord and led an active life of service to the community.

The Library supports students and teachers and provides an integral part of the academic excellence that the College strives for. Our students enjoy a welcoming, friendly environment in the Library and are encouraged to use our resources for both academic growth and personal enjoyment.

Resources include a wonderful collection of both non-fiction and fiction books including all the latest best-sellers, newspapers, magazines, graphic novels and comics. We strive to provide access to resources for students at all levels of need and abilities. Recommendations from students of new books are welcomed.

Online research databases are accessible both within the school and at home through our College Intranet page. Any assistance required to access and make use of these databases is readily available through the Library.

The Library is open Monday to Thursday 8.00 am to 5.00 pm & Friday 8.00 am to 4.00 pm.

Our staff are always happy to help so please ask when you need assistance.
