Working in the new library

Hi everyone,

I am really enjoying working in the new Main Street Library now it’s all finished and sparkling new.  How fortunate is this school to have two libraries, two Librarians, plus support staff in the form of fabulous Library Assistants?

Sadly the Tour de France has ended but the Tour Down Under is something to look forward to in Adelaide, January 2014 for anyone else interested.

This week in Science there are articles on sleep, the idea that dolphins may have individual  names and the vitamin myth.

In Libraries, there is a fabulous infographic about book lovers, a sad story about Lonely Planet laying off guide book writers and contributors, and the question of whether future libraries will have books.

In eLearning, we have visuals on educational  iPAD apps, are kids really motivated by technology?  Plus a piece on Media Literacy and close reading.

In Education, we have a piece on whether the face to face lecture is dead, protest over Qld school closures, and some brainy approaches to learning.

This week’s Brainy Quote:
