On a trip to Raven Books in Blackrock, the three Gaisce library helpers, Sophie Coote, Anne-Marie Keogh and Ellen Fanning and the two senior members of the graphic novel book club, Rebecca Heade and Rebecca Leeson, were welcomed to a wonderful world of books. Ravens Books have supplied many books for the library and on the trip, we were able to see new authors works and find many popular reads for the library. After the trip, one of the shopkeepers, Louisa, who served us wrote this on the Ravens Book website.
Gaisce and School Libraries
For the second year running, we will later this week be welcoming students from Loreto Beaufort who are participating in the Gaisce President’s Award. They are each given a budget to pick out books that will be entered into the school’s library system and be tracked for the academic year. There are many lessons to be learned in this excellent exercise and we will gladly welcome other schools/libraries who may wish to try out the scheme.
The trip was a worth while experience and the library now has a new range of books to read.
