At last! MOST of the new books that were requested by students have arrived. We are busy covering and accessioning them and they should be ready for borrowing on Tuesday. New books include Let it Snow by John Green, the latest Alex Rider book titled Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz, The Conspiracy 365 Series by Gabrielle Lord and Ascend, Switched and Torn by Amanda Hocking. And there are more! Game of Thrones fans should know that A Feast for Crows has just arrived as well. Come up to the library and look at them on the new display!
Don’t forget that all borrowers this term go into the draw for a book prize of their own choice. This will be drawn on the last Wednesday of term.
The words for this week in our vocabulary competition are MANIPULATE and EXTRAPOLATE. The first three students to give me correct definitions will get a prize. Everyone who answers correctly will go in the draw for a $5 canteen voucher.
All the words that have been in the competition will be given to teachers as well as posted outside the library. Anyone who can write a clear, paragraph that makes sense containing all those words will be in the running for a $5 canteen voucher. The entries should be placed in the box on the borrowing desk inside the library. Writers should not write more than 5 sentences.
