Mountfield Community Cybrary

Opening hours - 8.30 am - 3.00 pm Monday to Friday

The Cybrary is open every day before school and every lunch time (1.20 pm - 1.45 pm) for students to borrow resources and access computers. We are not open during wet lunch times.
The name, 'Mountfield' Community Cybrary links the local area history with the 21st Century use of computers and technology. The name 'Mountfield' is the title of the original dairy farm property which became our school grounds in 1979. The community uses the Cybrary for various meetings, school functions and performances.

 
The word 'Cybrary' comes from the name adopted by the University of Queensland Library to 'describe its integration of cyberspace and physical space'. The name recognizes the need for combining print and electronic information sources. 
Our Cybrary is a bright, colourful and welcoming environment for our students, staff, parents and school community to use and enjoy. The well-equipped Cybrary is air-conditioned with 15 computers and comfortable, custom-built furniture. Our Marino Room has an additional 30 laptops for whole class access. Teachers use the screens and data projectors for demonstrations, modelling and various learning activities. We have a number of iPads and iPods for teachers to borrow for their classrooms.

 
Our students enjoy reading and relaxing in our armchairs, playing games, doing research/assignments and accessing computers for educational purposes. The spacious and purpose-built building is conveniently located on ground level and in the centre of the school. Our refurbished courtyard is adjacent to the Federation Garden.
