Junior Fiction shelves

It's been a busy week in the library, as I've been assembling our new look shelving, kindly funded by the P&C.  Now the students will be able to actually see the covers of the books, rather than just the spine. It's already having an effect, with lunch time visitors sitting down on the floor with a book saying, "I didn't know we had this one!" The long term plan is to introduce this shelving to other sections of the library too - but have a look at how much nicer it looks already! 

Storm Boy Review

37 very excited students travelled to the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre today (22nd May) to watch a production of Storm Boy, based on the book by Colin Thiele. It was an amazing show. Why not watch our video review by 7 of the attendees, by going to http://mtousley.smugmug.com/Other-2/Storm-Boy-Review/ Then, if you like the sound of the story, you can always come and borrow the book from the library!

Book Reviews

Last term, both stage 3 classes read the novel, "Boss of the Pool" by Robin Klein. Here's a review by Indi. Have a read and decide if you'd like to read the book yourself.

An update from the library

Hello everyone! Term 2 is already in full swing in the library, with many people coming in regularly during lunch time to build, solve puzzles, draw, use the iPads and read. It's great to see so many of you each week! This week, we are having a half price poster sale. There are a number of posters from past book fairs that are available for purchase. The large posters are $2 and the small posters are $1. Do you need a new picture for your bedroom wall? Come along and see if there is something here to interest you.
