I LOVE the Dixon Room with its old portraits framed in gold.
I LOVE the teacher -librarians who support authors and illustrators and celebrate reading.
Vivacious Deborah Abela and I were the keynote speakers at the National Year of Reading Conference to enthusiastic teacher librarians at the Mitchell Library.
Thankyou to Ailsa Holmes-Walker and Caron Baumgartner for organising this wonderful conference.
The President of the School Library Association of NSW, Bill Sommerville’s welcome speech showed how committed school librarians are to reading.
Everyone remember that at 6 p.m. 25th August there’s the Reading Hour across Australia.
Thankyou to all those librarians who came up to me and said how much Ships in the Field means to them – that it’s their story too.
We have found home in this beautiful country.
