The above comments only begin to describe the Auckland Service Centre’s "Reading at the Beach" evening held on Tuesday December the 9th.
Almost 200 National Library of New Zealand bags of books for holiday reading, selected by librarians enthusiastic about promoting their favourite reads, left the centre. This will surely see many students benefiting from their teachers’ hours of literary nourishment.
Many examples of great ways to be in touch with books were promoted, and book reviews were enjoyed. The Reading at the Beach Blog was highlighted as a marvellous way for the group to maintain contact, and, Gavin Bishop presented a fascinating account of his skills as a writer and illustrator in a video link from Christchurch.
The evening was a wonderful success due to the great variety of enthusiastic presentations and the perfect opportunity for many teachers to enjoy chatting about books, books and more books.
