End of Year 2018 - Update

(Updated every day or so until 19 December 2018)
Your last remaining overdue books are coming back to the library a few per day. Congratulations to Room 4 who were the first class with all student library books returned.
Well done!

The library stocktake is now complete. We again have a number of books that are missing - they are not in the library and they are not on issue. We'd love to have these books back again, so if you find any hiding behind shelves or under the furniture, at school or at home, please drop them back to the library before the holidays.

The Christmas School Holidays are not far away now, but before they arrive there are some important tasks to get done. In the library we are preparing for our annual end of year stocktake!

All library books are due back before this Friday, 7th December. You can help by returning all your library books to the library "As Soon As Possible" and before the end of this week please.

Will your class will be first to return all their library books this year?

If you have any other school books such as journals, junior reading books and class books lying around at home then now is a good time to return these to school too.

                  Another Book to the Big Screen

                  Coming to movie theaters in December is the movie adaption of the young adult book "Mortal Engines" written by Phillip REEVE. This is a great book, I'm re-reading it again now before the movie release, and I'm looking forward to seeing the movie in December. 

                  "Mortal Engines" is the first in a four part book series, we have all the books in the Senior Fiction section of our library.
