Claiming the week!! Celebrate Library and Information Week


              Library and Information Week (LIW) will be held from 20 - 26 May 2012



This 'THINK OUTSIDE THE BOOK'! theme lends itself for you to personalise!

Tell your clients and users what you do that is 'outside the book'. 

Tell them about all the things you do that are about more than just books.
  • Genealogy
  • Music, DVD's and toys.
  • Research
  • IT support
  • Education and training
  • Preservation
  • The list is long...
  • This year's theme highlights that libraries are far more than just the books they contain and opens the door to give the community a chance to discover all the things you can offer.
Visit Australian Library Information Association to discover more about LIW and how you can celebrate.
The events below always work well at our school and I also hold a bookfair during this time to get our school community in to visit our library so they can see first hand the learning space and the learning tools available to their children.
