Book Week 2023: Resources, Links and Ideas
Book Week is arguably the biggest event in the school library calendar. Book Week gives us an excuse to celebrate reading, Australian literature, school libraries and the people who bring books to children – from booksellers to school library staff, parents, teachers and beyond.
The theme for Book Week 2023 is Read, Grow, Inspire.
Professional Learning Opportunities June 2023
I have to be honest, this is a very short list. Between being sick, behind with the massive amount of work I need to do at work and just wanting to sleep a whole lot more these days, I put this together just before it hit your inbox, so it is a little leaner than usual. If there is an event or awesome post you have heard about and I’ve missed it, please let me know. Take care out there.
Professional Learning Opportunities May 2023
It’s May. Already. But don’t worry. It means new month with awesome research, articles, webinars, podcasts and more on topics from AI to class novels, action research and leadership. Happy learning.
Professional Learning: ASLA 2023 Designing Dynamic School Libraries Experiences Presentation
It was so fantastic to be involved with the #ASLA2023 conference. When Anne Weaver invited me to present alongside her on the topic of designed experiences for dynamic school libraries, I jumped at the chance.
The ASLA 2023 conference had such a wonderful range of presenters and topics and brought together school library staff from all over the country and even from overseas.

Happy new year! Well, almost. Another year, another chance to learn, experience and grow. There are so many incredible learning opportunities coming our way and I can’t wait to share them with you this year. I hope to make these lists relevant for all school library professionals. If you have any suggestions, ideas or have a professional learning opportunity you’d like me to include, please get in touch.
2022 Year in Review
I absolutely love reflecting on the year that has been. I do it with my library with an annual report and I like to keep a bit of a reflection here on my blog. So many posts that I share here are for my own benefit (sorry!!). I know that it helps others, but it’s really handy for me to have a reflection of what I have done (and how I did it), so I can reuse, adapt, reflect and change.
Last year I shared a similar review of the year and it really is amazing reading back over it, looking at what I hoped to achieve in the year ahead and how much has changed in just the past 12 months.
