As many of you will have noticed the library is undergoing some fairly major repair work. We have split the resources over two rooms and we have the smallest of spaces for the library.

I have set up a small reading area in Room 9 for those who want to read at lunchtime or return books before school.

Eighty percent of the library is packed up but I have a very generous budget to work with this year. So…… I will be going around to the classes during their library times with the new books and some of the old books. The children will be able to issue one book at a time but as I said earlier they can change books before school and at lunchtime.

This would be a good time to utilise the public libraries. If time is tight you can order books online and pick them up at the library of your choice when they arrive. The Auckland Library collection is huge and is held at more than 50 libraries all of which you can use.
