Autumn Activities

Dr WhoThe start of term is always a frantic rush, meeting new students, making sure your LMS has updated properly, lots of inductions – as well as making contacts and re-establishing old contacts with staff!  Plus, in all that activity we also have many things we need to bring to your attention!

We have a great day lined up at our one day conference in Cardiff – Reading Outside the Box - at the wonderful Dr Who Experience.  I think this will be a day we don’t forget in a hurry – so do remember to book up (early bird booking closes on 30th September) but - we can take bookings beyond that date too!  The programme is packed with excellent speakers, and I’m sure your heads will be packed full of new ideas.

The School Librarian of the Year Award Honour List are gradually being revealed on the website – do look at their profiles and see some of the fascinating activities they are creating for their students.

The Information Book Award posters were sent out in your recent copy of School Librarian – if you would like some more please do contact the office as we have some we can send out.  Meanwhile do take part in the Children’s Choice voting on the website – it’s fascinating seeing whether the students agree with the judges choices.  This year there we have created a booklet of resources you might find useful for working with Information Books in your libraries and classes – check them out!

Have a great Autumn Term
