National Education Summit – 2019 Brisbane
On the 31 of May and the 1 of June 2019, I was fortunate enough to attend the 2019 National Education Summit in Brisbane and the 2 day Capacity Building School Libraries conference. Thanks to my employer and leadership team for encouraging and funding my attendance. What a two days it was. So much knowledge and experience, so much to be inspired about. If you were unable to attend, read on for a quick summery of the speakers and the info shared. And if you are interested in future events, sign up to stay updated on the National Education Summit website.
Library Ramblings: Holiday Borrowing

This is a topic I see pop up in school librarian discussions every time summer stars to roll around. To lend or not to lend? That is a question many librarians wrestle with. The long summer holiday period offers both a wonderful time for relaxed, lengthy reading, but also threatens lost and damaged books as families travel, move house or spend long days at the beach. So, do the rewards outweigh the risk?
Prolong Your Summer Reading Display
This Summer Reading Display was used to extend our Australia Day Display. I kept the flags but added a 3D sun and new wording.

Summer has come to an end down here in the Southern Hemisphere, while those from the Northern Hemisphere are gearing up to welcome the summer rays. This summer reading window display has graced the library’s circulation windows for the past seven weeks, celebrating summer and good books.
