Hi everyone, this week’s post is slightly different from the others this month. I will be imparting some bookish advice using my librarian skills. So, parents and teachers out there, you might want to settle in and see if this post will be helpful for you and your tween….
Hello everyone, welcome to the very last post for 2020!! I bring you summer tidings from New Zealand and a huge sigh of relief for the end of what felt like an extremely long year!! This extra post for this week showcases an amazing adult non-fiction read I found that was all about librarians, actual real life ones!! Have a read of this post and see if you know anyone in this read!!
Hi all, I hope I haven’t been boring anyone with all things to do with libraries!! This last week I wanted to showcase the amazing people who as librarians have been pioneers in the world of literacy and reading. I know there are many amazing and famous librarians throughout history who have achieved so much, but the post that follows is about two exceptional librarians and their life stories!! I hope you enjoy them!!
Hi everyone, I hope last week’s post was able to start an honest conversation with your young adult or tween on their choices of reads. This week’s post celebrates libraries of all sizes and shapes, and the young readers who enjoy all that a library offers them. I hope some of my readers find a version of themselves in the pages of these books as I did!!
I hope this month so far has shown you how amazing, crazy, and truly inspiring libraries mean to me. I thought I’d take some time to share the journey I took into becoming a librarian, my true life’s passion. Ok, here goes…
Hi everyone, this week I’ll be taking you on a journey into a fantasy-filled world like no other!! When I found this adorable read I found myself getting trapped in a wonderland so beautiful it made my heart leap. Yes, you could say the book covers had the perfect hook…the image of a curious young girl and the word ‘library’…what more could this librarian ask for? To find out more, press the button below.
Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the series from last week!! This week I’ll be covering an important issue that I face on most days at work: book censorship. This is quite a complex and diverse topic, but I believe it’s one that our younger readers will continue to face. I have selected a short list of titles that I believe can illustrate this issue. Please, parents and teachers, have a read about this with your young adult and talk together about what you both think about this.
Hi everyone, this first post features an adventure series like no other!! If you have a young bibliophile at home who does nothing but read all day, get them to check out this series!! Filled with puzzles, mystery, adventure, libraries, literature,…oops…too much already!! Just give it whirl, see if they like it!!
Hello and welcome all to the last month of 2020!! We actually made it! Hands up if you still feel you’re in July! Everyone at my work is lamenting the fact that we didn’t feel the time passing us by but we just had to look around at all that we had accomplished to realise the year is actually coming to an end. I know you’re wondering what exactly does that title mean up there….
Hi everyone, this next post features a lovely book I found by a happy accident. Acclaimed Newbery medalist Katherine Paterson’s Bridge to Terabithia had always been a favourite read of mine growing up as a child, so when I saw her name linked to this one, I had to read it. If you’re like me and enjoyed her award-winner of a read, then you’ll love this one too!!
