Information about sustainability could also be found in the library last week. Khun Noot made a lovely informative display that showed the children how to be green and why your actions are important, such as recycling your waste. We also showed videos about sustainability which can be found on webpath Express on our library website and of course we displayed lots of books, covering everything from endangered habitats and animals to solar power energy!

Baby & Toddler Group
We are looking for a new member to replace Ms Sara for our Baby & Toddler Group! Soon it's time for Ms Sara's son to join our Nursery group at St Andrews, so we’ll sadly say goodbye to her and will be looking for someone to replace her.
Do you have some time on Tuesday mornings from 8.15am until 9am? Do you love spending time with little ones? And do you know your English nursery rhymes or willing to learn them? If you feel this is something for you, please contact Astrid. Thank you!
Come and join us tomorrow! If you would like to bring your young child to attend this group please contact Astrid in the library, so that we can ensure that there are enough snacks and facilities to cater for everyone.
As previously mentioned, we are in the process of organising ALL our High School books per genre! I’m very pleased to say that we are in the final stages of amending our library system and students are now able to search books by genre.
As you can see, our shelves have become quite colourful! However, this is not the final stage, as we will organise the books per genre on our shelves. We are hoping to have this completed by end of this term!
Books of the Week
Early Years: Zippo the Super Hippo
By Kes Gray
Zippo doesn't want to be an ordinary hippo. He wants to be super! Being good at swimming and splashing in mud aren't really superpowers, though. Perhaps he can fly like his friend Roxi. But who's ever heard of a flying hippopotamus? Especially one with such a big bottom...From award-winning author Kes Gray and exciting new illustrating talent Nikki Dyson. This fantastically funny superhero will be flying into children's imaginations everywhere!
Primary Fiction: Jail Break!: Romans on the Rampage
By: Jeremy Strong
Perilus and his family are in trouble again! His dad has been arrested for stealing money from the Imperial Mint. Can Croakbag the talking raven save the day once more? A very funny book, perfect for children age 7-9.
Primary Non-Fiction: Jack's Garden
by Henry Cole
"Building on a rhyme that will be familiar to many children, author-illustrator Cole creates an enticing guide to creating a garden. 'This is the garden that Jack planted...' The final illustration presents a satisfied-looking boy surrounded by a lush, bird-filled flower garden....A concluding page of gardening suggestions serves as a springboard to books with more specific guidelines."--Horn Book.
High School Fiction (age 8+): My Brother Is a Superhero
By: David Solomons
Luke Parker was just your average comic book fan until his boring, teacher’s pet, helps-old-ladies-across-the-street brother Zack got turned into a superhero. Luke can’t believe the unfairness of it all—he’s the one with the encyclopedic knowledge of everything from Ant-Man to Wolverine! At least he can help Zack—aka Star Guy—with all the important parts of becoming a superhero, like using his newfound powers and deciding whether or not to wear a cape.
But when Star Guy gets into super-size trouble, it’s up to Luke—and his intrepid neighbor, Lara—to rescue his big brother and, with a little luck, help him save the world.
