Welcome to the MGC Library

When you walk into the Melbourne Girls’ College library, the first things you notice is the relaxed ambience of the space. With its own vertical garden wall and comfortable furniture, students can come in for a quiet read or study, while bathed in natural light piercing the glass window perimeter. When nested inside, the library surrounds you with thousands of books, and holds a collection which aims to please even the fussiest of readers.

The students can utilise multiple study nooks, a tiered seating area, four group study rooms and the library’s very own Green Screen Room; it’s no wonder the library continues to be a cornerstone of the school. With a variety of projector screens inside and a sunny wooden deck extending out to the school gardens, the space is often used for classes, assemblies, co-curricular gatherings and special events.
