Presenting a message from Lizzie Chase:
Room to Read is an inspirational organisation working in developing countries. They are organising a
Book Brunch at the State Library on June 23rd,
It features a Students helping Students Initiative and they would love teachers, teacher librarians and students to learn about their work from writing ambassadors Tristan Bancks, Susanne Gervay and Melina Marchetta.
Room to Read is celebrating its 10th anniversary!
Since 2000 they have grown rapidly and are now marking three major milestones: they have already built their 1000th school, they are opening their 10,000th library and by the end of 2010 they will have over 10,000 girls enrolled in their long-term scholarship program.
RSVP to Pam Cook  or Colleen Zurowksi  by June 16.
