Vic Premier’s Reading Challenge

Posted by SalesianLibrary on February 18, 2009

Years 7-10 students!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read 15 books. No it’s not mission impossible! You have until August to complete your mission. In return will receive a certificate from the Premier of Victoria, John Brumby and of course you will get to read some fantastic books!

There is a list of books in the Library, of which you must read at least 10 of (or 5 if you’re in year 10) and then the rest of the books can be of your choosing. Or for an easier way of choosing books, just browse the shelves for books with the Reading Challenge stickers on them. There are different stickers for the different age groups so if you’re in years 7-8 you should look out for the orange stickers and if you’re in years 9-10 you should look out for the round blue stickers.

Also if you’re planning on getting involved in the MS Readathon, you can add these books to your Premier’s Reading Challenge tally.

See the Library staff for more information!

Welcome back, 2009

Posted by SalesianLibrary on February 2, 2009

Welcome everyone to the 2009 school year. I hope your holidays were fun but restful. The Library has a few exciting things planned for the year. In fact, February is ‘Love your Library’ month so our wonderful Librarian Mrs Stanislawski has made up a display. Come into the library and check it out when you can.

Did anyone see the Twilight movie over the holidays? What did you think? As good as the book?

Another film that was based on a book, that I saw, was The Tale of Despereux which I thought was very cute. We’ve actually got the book here in the library, if you’ve seen the movie and want to give it a go, or even if you haven’t seen the movie.

There are quite a few books been made into movies this year so keep an eye out for them. These include:

So you might want to check out the books before you go see the movies! I know from past experience the book is almost always better than the movie, so it’ll probably be worth it.
