Library lovers in new surroundings

Today, the staff celebrated Library Lovers’ Day, a concept promoted by ALIA (Australian Library & Information Association), a fledgling tradition now in its second year here.

Essentially, it was just a good excuse to throw the staff a bonus morning tea, this time in the new surroundings of the recently revamped library, and to take in the cumulative effects of the “shoestring makeover”. I’m really loving that the “desks end” of the library is the calming mint green end, and the “Check it out” end is all corporate burgundy.

Last year, I promoted OASIS Web Enquiry and “Scan” on Library Lovers’ Day. This year we just ate, drank and were merry. Edible goodies included ye olde Conversation heart-shaped sweets and some cute heart-shaped biscuits. The new peace lily took pride of place as a table setting, complete with little heart-shaped picks “growing” from the plant.

We’re just loving out “new” school library.
