Mason Cooley said, “Reading gives us some place to go, when we have to stay where we are.”

A book is a magical thing that lets you travel to far away places without ever leaving your chair. – Katrina Mayer


Children who read regularly improve their vocabulary and language skills.

Reading exercises our brains. It improves concentration, teaches children about the world around them, and it develops a

child's imagination and helps them to develop empathy. 

At Sunridge we aim to provide a wide range of books, fiction and non-fiction in English and Afrikaans to suit most

of the children’s tastes. We have annual book sales to boost our library’s book collection.

The library is open during both breaks and we have prefects and helpers who manage the  issuing and returning of books.
