Event Description

I am going to try a bookcrossing activity for the last two weeks of this term. Have a look at the website. http://www.bookcrossing.com/

I am going to ask the senior monitors to bring a book they would like to share with someone and then all my books will have the bookcrossing stickers in them.

The monitors will explain to the school in an assembly how Book Crossing Works and also try to create a hype around it..
We will then leave these books lying around the school and if you want to read one of them then you pick it up and log onto to bookcrossing to tell them you are reading the book.
Kind of like a pass it forward activity with books!

We may also go into the local village mall and try leaving a few books there too!
See the pic below of the inside cover of one of the book crossing books.

I hope it works well and creates a hype about "reading" and passing a book forward for someone else to read.

Do You Speak Game?

At the White Oak Library District, I helped work on my library’s district wide strategic plan.
