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…
