And these have been added in the knowledge section so they can be borrowed:
With these beautiful, thorough, informative, up-to-date books, reading for learning is a pleasure!
Congratulation to Evie Simonsohn for the beautiful drawing of a shooner to illustrate her favourite book “Bloody Jack”, by L.A. Meyer. This book is unfortunately not in the library and is now out of print!..
Congratulation to Caleb Eason for his effective illustration of the Chaos Walking trilogy, by Patrick Ness, Winner of Booktrust Teenage Prize 2008. — Shortlisted for Carnegie Medal 2009. — Shortlisted for Guardian Children’s Fiction Award 2008. The background has been made by writing words in mirror on the back of the paper. Quite smart!
Well Done Keltan Voyce for the graphic novel style of the poster of the first book in the popular series Bone!
Come to the library to get your prize: A book voucher 😉
And thanks to all students who participated. Your poster will soon decorate the library windows and give ideas of good books to read to everyone.
After the Favourite Book Festival running all August, the library is well decorated with colourful garlands and lots of Favourite Books recommendations.
There was then an Ancient Civilization display and New Revision Guides. The Picture books have been rearranged, the Knowledge area shelves have been extended and re-labelled. And lots of new books have been added to the fiction collection as always.
We often had two classes using the library at the same time which works well as there are three distinct spaces in the library. The Holiday Reading Packs have had an unprecedented success, finishing the term like a rocket!
