July’s Library Life is now online. Do have a read, it is full of interesting stuff including makerspaces, modern learning environment. I’ve written a piece in it about social media at Christchurch City Libraries.
A cold wintry morning during the holidays in the cosy Canterbury Children’s Library where Story-telling sessions were well attended each day. Many of the childfen combined the story-session with choosing their holiday reading, and others made the trip an opportunity to examine the working meccano models and electric trains. From left: Mari-Ann Fairbairn (aged 9), Thea Clemence (aged 8) and Geoffrey Baker (aged 8) with Miss Shirley Lindsay Reading of the library staff who is just choosing a story.
