Glenealy Library News
Book Week Highlights
The library was a hive of activity every day. Students were meeting authors, entering competitions, shopping for books at the Bookazine Book Fair, listening to stories, watching a puppet show and enjoying all the buzz!
And of course, we all enjoyed the Book Week Character Parade!
Read all about it below.
It was great to have a variety of authors in to work with the students.
Many thanks to the PTA who sponsored these author visits - the library would not be able to invite such high-quality authors without the PTA support - thank you to all parents.
More details below...
Nick Toczeck at Glenealy
Nick did 2 assemblies for us - one for Years 1, 2 and 3 and then another for Years 4, 5 and 6. He read some poems, showed us some magic tricks and did a puppet show for us too!
Nick later worked with Years 4, 5 and 6 on writing and gave some great teaching points on how to write effective poetry.
Jan Latta at Glenealy
More information on Jan and her videos can be found here.

Bookazine Book Fair
The students were so excited to shop for books independently and were delighted with their purchases. It was really great to see and hear all the excitement around books.
The sale was an amazing success and thanks to your generosity, Bookazine has been able to donate a grand total of $7,800 worth of books to Glenealy Library!
We look forward to purchasing fabulous new books for the library and thank you very much for your support.
