The Library is awash with wonderful displays of student work at the moment.  All those budding artists out there have given us a whole range of weird and wonderful sculptures that are dotted  all around the library.  The Year 10 Warfare classes have been researching the American Civil War and have presented their work in the form of diaramas that tell stories of life during during this turbulent time in American history.  The writers amongst you have been busy as well with the Year 8  picture books,  Year 9  magazines and  Year 10 writing competion.  The winners of all of these competitions are on display and available for you to read and enjoy so come in, take a look and be inspired!

Is there life after Harry?

Posted: July 21, 2011 in Good reads

Life After Harry July 2011He who cannot be named has  finally been destroyed. Harry, Ron and Hermione can now  hang up their wands and get on with their wizarding lives.  But what do we all do???  We’ve dressed up in our most glamorous cloaks, flicked and swished our wands and  sobbed our way through the movie.  Now what?? Well don’t be dismayed.  Help is on the way in the form of a fabulous list of wonderful books that will transport you to other adventures beyond your wildest dreams.  Check it out and if you have any fantastic suggestions of your own  please send us a post and we’ll add it  to our list.  And…well let’s face it…when you’re really homesick for Hogwarts and the odd butterbeer,  just read them all again…and again…and again…and again…!

So today is the last day of Term 2 and there are lots of students, teachers and librarians looking forward to two weeks of delicious leisure.  We have had a great semester here at the library blog and would like to wish everybody a wonderful break.  We look forward to seeing you all in Term 3 for more magical reading adventures!  Meanwhile here are some inspiring pictures of beautiful libraries for you to enjoy until we meet again.

Library Blog Quiz Winners!

Posted: July 1, 2011 in Competitions

Hurray for everybody who entered our even-more-tricky-than-usual blog quiz this week.  Several people sent in complete sets of correct answers and as usual we used the internet’s mighty power to generate a winner at random from these.  We are delighted to anounce that after a gruelling semester of trying to win the library blog quiz, Mr Deylan Kilic-Aidani of 7B3 has finally cracked it this week!  His glorious prize is a book voucher from our literature-loving friends at Readings book shop.  Runners-up were Bernadette Hall and Elaine Yong, who also receive a participation prize.  Prizes are available from the library today, but if you forget to pick them up they will still be here next term.  Well done everybody!  The library blog quiz is now going to take a brief but well-deserved hiatus, and will be back next term.
