Get pages turning this October...

Throughout October every year the world celebrates International School Library Month (ISLM). The month is a celebration of the work of school libraries and here in the UK and coincides with other events for all bookworms - such as the Man Booker Prize announcement, the National Tell a Story Day celebrations as well as National Poetry Day, to name but a few.

The LRC is involved in celebrations for International School Library Month including;

  • Welcoming new members of the LRC Team! A huge congratulations to Liam Gowing, Chloe Medway, Sophie Bennett, Adele Lennon, Lizzie Foster, Kara Hourihane, Anna Royle and Molly Howard. They will join the current team members (Jack Lyon, Beckie Lees, Rebecca Murray, Elicia Richards, Mollie Royle and Rebecca Morris) in helping to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all students and staff using the LRC. For more information, visit the LRC Team page here.
  • The LRC reading group meets every Monday after college to talk about Young Adult Literature; this term, the theme we are looking at is Dystopia. Rock the Boat Publishers have kindly donated some copies of a brand new YA dystopian novel called Mindwalker by A.J. Steiger.
  • The first ten people at our book club on Monday will be able to pick up a BOOK for FREE! So come along and join the conversation. In line with National Tell a Story Day and National Poetry Day, the LRC is also looking for writers to contribute to a new LRC magazine. If you have a story to tell, a book to review or a poem to share, then please pop into the LRC to get involved.

Keep checking back for more bookishness fun throughout the month!
