Library Week - Day 5

Oh no!  It's the last day of Library Week!   I hope you all enjoyed Dress-Up Day, and that you are looking forward to Library Olympics today.
This last post is called 'The Joy of Books', and it is very clever.
Thank you everybody for making Library Week 2012 great fun.  The enthusiasm you all have for the library makes it a wonderful place to be!

Library Week - Day 4

Did you all enjoy hearing Kate De Goldi yesterday?  She loved the school, and talked about how polite and well-behaved you all were!  
The next Library Week post is about Robert Sabuda.  He creates the most amazing pop-up books.  He has made some classic stories into pop-ups, and they are incredible!  Here is a look at what he has done with Alice in Wonderland. Which teachers' costumes look most like their characters in the book?

Library Week - Day 3

Has anybody ever heard their parents (or grandparents) talk about 'The Two Ronnies'?  They were comedians who had a very popular programme quite a few years ago.... but this clip proves that good comedy is timeless.  I think our student librarians would quite like to use this filing system sometimes!

Library Week - Day 2

In today's Library Week post, I thought it would be good to get educational.  This is a nice little video on how books are produced, specifically hardback books.

Derek Landy visits Upper Hutt

This week, Derek Landy, author of the Skulduggery Pleasant series, was hosted by HIBS and St Brendans schools, to give an author talk to fans of his books.  The four students who had issued the most Skulduggery books went along, and had a great time listening to Derek.  He was very funny, and he enjoyed interacting with the crowd!  The most exciting news was that there may well be an announcement about a movie deal, very very soon!  Here is a photo of Leroy, Ben, Riley, and Josef with Derek.

We now have the latest in this series (for Year 6 only) in the library, and if you click on the cover, there is a link to the website.
