The Woodstock School Learning Resource Centres (aka Libraries and Computer Labs) are the school's gateway to 21st century information resources and information-using tools. Combining the traditional library collections and services with up-to-date computer labs and internet-accessible resources, the LRC is able to provide students and staff with both the information itself and the tools needed to manipulate and share it. Access to the collections, as well as to selected websites, is through the new graphic-friendly catalogue, known as KBOLT, the "Knowledge Branch of the Lyre Tree."
The LRC offers a full range of facilities to both the Junior School and the Senior School, be it a place to study in groups or alone, a computer classroom, or an afterschool "hang-out". Recreational reading at all levels is encouraged with a wide assortment of popular books, newspapers and magazines.
