Make a Christmas tree out of old books

 

Join us in the library during Flex Time this Friday, December 3rd, to learn how to make a Christmas tree craft out of old books. They take quite a while to make, but we’ll get started and then you’re welcome to come back at lunch/after school to work on them, or take them home to work on. If you can’t make it to the workshop, but would still like to make a tree, you can find the instructions here (folded tree) and here (folded again, but with more details)  and here (cutout tree) and are welcome to come and get an old book from the library to use in your craft.

Interesting article about magic schools in fiction

This article from the publisher Tor’s website has an interesting perspective on how many of the ‘magic schools’ in fantasy novels reproduce the inequalities and systemic problems of real schools.

For Library Club Shelvers

Hi Shelvers. Thanks for volunteering. Your job is the most complex of the library club groups, and there is some information you need to learn to do it. The booklet we gave you has some information, but we know lots of people like to get information from videos too.

Below are some videos to watch on how to shelve books.

Non-fiction

Fiction (it’s mostly the same as for us, but ignore the part about ‘E’ on the call number, we don’t use that in High School library)

A couple more:

This one is on reading and sorting spine label numbers.

And this one explains the Dewey Decimal system for you (plus some extra info that’s specific to the library that made the video – ignore that part).

If that stressed you out (don’t worry, we don’t expect you to immediately know how to do everything perfectly), here’s some relaxing library fireplace ambience.

And because it’s October, here’s some spooky library music.

Afrofuturism

mage sourced from You may have seen the Afrofuturism display in the hall outside the library and wondered what it was all about. There is some information on the board, but here’s an interesting article about Afrofuturism and Africanfuturism – a term coined by author Nnedi Okorafor and explained in her blog post “Africanfuturism Defined“.

You can also find more resources in our Afrofuturism Collection in Destiny.
