Books for Students Bus
This from Ms Gilbert:
“A big purple bus was parked at Wellington this Wednesday and it was full of books (courtesy of Browns Books for Students.) Some Year 7 and 8 students were lucky enough to come on board and scan the books that they would like to see in the library. I remember at my primary school (in the 1970s) the thrill of going on to the mobile library to choose books for the school – although we didn’t have scanners then or electronic baskets!
It was a great to see the enthusiasm that the pupils brought to the bus and how excited they were about the books (something that doesn’t happen all the time!) Although I may not be buying all of the thousands of books they put in my basket, I will certainly be buying their favourites!”
