Peel High School Library

The Peel High Library is a dynamic, resource-rich environment where students can access a range of texts in many media formats. The librarian is Ms Tania Gammage and her assistant is Ms Ashlee Robinson (Mon, Wed, Thu & Fri). We have been extensively expanding our collection with student requested novels, graphic novels and a broadly expanded manga selection.

We cater for not only a broad selection of reading levels, we also have expanded into many different genres, including Indigenous, multicultural, environmental and others such as fantasy, young adult, crime fiction and adventure.

We are very approachable and are happy to help with selections, recomendations and also in supporting students with research and technology.
