New Librarians’ Symposium
Thanks to Rebecca who hosted yesterday’s very successful meeting at Kingsgrove PS in her new BER library. We had a wonderful turn out and great to see some new faces as well.
As well as Stu Hasic’s ITC update we had Colleen Folley from School Libraries and Information Literacy unit come and speak to us. We were very excited to hear about SCAN going online. It looks fantasic and I’m sure it will be in invaluable teaching and learning reference for Teacher Librarians and class teachers alike.

I’d love to hear how other schools and libraries are recognising reconciliation week and what programs/lessons are happening?

In May every year, libraries and information services throughout Australia showcase their many and varied resources and services through different programs and events targeted to a cross-section of the community. The week provides the opportunity to introduce new services and professional skills to the community, and to publicly canvas issues of importance to the provision of library and information services in Australia.
