Andy Griffith coming soon

Yes that's right - you heard it here first. The writer Andy Griffiths is coming to Christchurch in August. All senior school students are going to visit him at the Town Hall and hear all about his books and writing.
For a sneak preview check out his website.
To celebrate we have bought his latest book "Just Macbeth".
If you like stories about witches and ghosts then this one might the one for you to read next.
His books are wickedly funny.
I can't wait to go with all you students.

Great new website

Take a look at this great new website. Infoblitz is a gateway to lots of websites.
Some of the topics include,
  • New Zealand,
  • technology,
  • art and craft,
  • music and dance,
  • animals,
  • authors.
It is certainly a site I will be bookmarking and visiting heaps.
It is bright and fresh and very easy to use. Just click on the links and have fun.
Great for research and hobbies.
The site was created by Wendy Ballard, librarian at Greenpark Primary School in Tauranga and I think she has done a wonderful job.
