Display on Egypt

7 September 2009

Our latest display is on Egypt and many of the boys have loved peering into the lifestyle of the Egyptians, so many years ago.
It prompted some funny walking by three of our student librarians caught here on camera; Sam, Ben and Johnny.

New websites on books

7 September 2009

Bookseer is o great. It's for kids and parents and anyone who reads. The front page asks you to type in what you've read lately that you like and within a click of a button books lists are revealed on similar books. You can click on the books and sometimes it will provide a review but sometimes it will take you to a site where you can purchase the books.
Ignore it - just go for the lists and you never know we may just have some of them in our library.
I already have heaps of ideas of what to read next just by putting in my favourite books.
