Winter Storytelling

It's looking like we could have a miserably cold and wintry week ahead. It's so nice to have the Library Heat Pump up and running.  It is quick and efficient at making our new space toasty and warm!

In this weather, it's nice to sit down and listen to a story.  Here is the Library Lion, from one of my favourite storytelling sites, Storyline Online.  It's a great site to have a look around on a rainy or cold day...

...and here is the link to the site, so you can explore more stories....

NZ Post Children's Book Awards 2014

It's the time of year again where we get the chance to see all the amazing books nominated for the Children's Book Awards!  You may have noticed the books displayed on the shoe cubby shelf just inside the library door... and some of you may even have had a story or two read to you by your teacher.  This week, if you have time in your library session, have a look at them with your teacher - and you might even choose to vote as a class on which ones you like best.  There is also a link below so you can vote online individually, if you prefer.  I know which ones my favourite books are... I wonder how many of you will agree with me... !

Welcome back to Term 2


It's so exciting to have normal classes in our brand new space!  It's going to be great to have all the books within easy reach again, and to have the library buzzing with students and teachers and not just power tools!

On our New Book stand this week is Eric Vale: Epic Fail.  If you liked Wimpy Kid books, or Timmy Failure, Big Nate or Origami Yoda books, you will love Eric Vale!  Have you ever had a day you just wanted to forget?  Eric definitely has.....

Here is the trailer on YouTube  to have a look at - come and reserve the book from the library this week!
