The secret life of the pencil. Gorgeously photographed pencils that belong to creative people.

Even free-floating words in our library tell a story. I would love to see some photos of old signs in your libraries. The past lives in sympathy with the present in our libraries.
Words tell a story. You're thinking about stories in books, aren't you? What about the words that are free-floating - on walls, shelves, boxes? Some have been created recently while others have liv...

How do you show teaching staff that they are truly welcome in the library and that TLs can be supportive in many ways - in a personal way. Well I think we managed to win staff over with our little brown bags. Thanks to Catherine Morton for preparing such gorgeous little bags with a personal touch.
After thinking about how we could promote the library to staff on the first day of our 2015 school year, we decided to greet them with a show bag of library goodies. We wanted to remind staff about...

Great energy at our co-curricular groups Expo this year.
Monty and Gregor encouraging students to join the Book Club Melbourne High School's motto, "More than just marks", is no mere claim. This week the energy of student-run (and teacher-coordinated) co...

It did come as a bit of surprise, but as the saying goes "Miracles do happen". We witnessed today, the first inkling of a new era, the awakening of "Education Nirvana." This morning at 10:00 am Greenwich Meantime, the ministe...

We don't let any events/special days go by without dressing up the library - all part of promotion. I would love to see how others support special days in the library.

Loved the way our new Writing Club student leaders spoke about process and involved everyone in a writing task.
          A huge thanks to Zac and his co-captains, Will and Eeshan, for today's first meeting for the year. Brilliant job, I think you'll all agree. Welcome to you all, especially the new year 9s,...

Sorry I've been absent for so long but holidays! :) Almost at an end now. Just sharing 3 excellent reading lists by one of our most erudite reading teachers. Does anyone have reading lists they particularly recommend? 
Hello there. I hope you've been enjoying the freedom of the Summer holidays. I definitely have and so this blog has been dormant for quite some time. It's okay; we all need a break. So to start off...
