Library Love @ St Martin’s

If you walked into our library at the moment you wouldn’t be left in any doubt that February has been “Love Your Library Month” and we love our library at St Martin’s…

Some classes have been trying Blind Dates with books by ‘dating’ an author or genre they haven’t read or recommending a book they have enjoyed as a Blind Date Book for a friend.

The Year Two classes have written Valentines to their favourite book characters with Billie B Brown and Hey Jack firm favourites.


The Prep and Year One classes have enjoyed library stories including Winston the Book Wolf where they discovered ‘reading is eating words with your eyes’; Walter’s Wand and used wands to create some ‘reading magic’ and  Library Lion where they met our very own Library Lions, had fun roaring and discussed the importance of our library rules.

The Year 3-6 classes have spent the past two weeks creatively making bookmarks that you can see here.

To celebrate and enjoy “Love Your Library Month”, I invited any students who were interested to have some fun and share what they loved or liked about our LRC.  Thank you to the many students who took up the challenge…you never cease to amaze me with your creativity and enthusiasm!  Our Circulation Desk is proudly displaying your ‘library love’…

Students shared their ‘library love’ in many ways including posters, models of different types, Minecraft, PowerPoint, dressing as their favorite book character, videos, poems and two Year 6 students re-wrote the words to two songs and performed them!  Enjoy watching the two slideshows below…

  1. Dear Miss Y,

    Wow what a wonderful lot of talented students you have at your school. I can see why they love your library and it’s all because of you.

    Love how your library opens up the door to so many different and great things that happen in your library daily. Wish I was back at school and spending a day at your library.

    Keep up the great work Miss Y as from this post I can see that the kids really do love you and your library.

    You did a fabulous job making the Hungry Caterpillar. I love looking at him when I’m sitting at our Borrowing Desk.

  6. Hi Miss Y

    It was fun and a bit tricky making the LRC with minecraft and trying to work out where to put everything.

  7. Hi Abbey,

    I really liked the way you popped into the LRC after school to think about your favourite parts of the LRC so you could create them with Minecraft. You did a fabulous job!

    love from Lily

  9. Hi Miss Y
    I like the videos on the blog. I love you as my library teacher. I love to read Billie B Brown, Hey Jack and Katie Woo, but when I take new books like The book of dreams I love it.

  10. Hi Lily,

    I’m glad you love our LRC Blog, I really enjoy writing it for our library.

    There is going to be lots of excitement when The 65-storey treehouse is published later in the year! I wonder how many copies of the book they will need to print for all of the kids who will want to buy it?

    Miss Y 🙂

  11. Hi Edie,

    I’m very lucky to be a teacher librarian so I can teach lovely people like you!

    I’m glad to hear you are enjoying having adventures with Billie B Brown, Hey Jack and Katie Woo. We have lots of great books to enjoy in our library.

    I’m like you, I really like discovering new books when I’m borrowing. ‘The Book of Dreams’ is a fun way to take your imagination for a walk…

    Happy reading Edie!
