Teacher/Librarian Network Meeting

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of speaking at a Teacher/Librarian Network Meeting in Essendon – and I mean it was a pleasure. So lovely to speak to an audience who understand and care so much about children’s books and all facets of the children’s book industry.

It reminded me of the important and vital place Librarians hold, not only in school libraries but public libraries as well and in a world of technology in learning, it was wonderful to see the extra support and caring that librarians provide to all students.

So last week, I presented to this group of professionals, to a group of Legacy ladies (many Queenie riders) and rolled around on the floor with a baby who was enjoying a private viewing of my next book. I feel so privileged to do what I do.

  1. Sharon Greenaway Hi Corinne, I sometimes think that if I knew then what I know now I would have become a children's librarian! An the benefit of hindsight, eh?

  2. janeen brian I value teacher-librarians in schools - they have so much to offer the life of each child - and I ache when I hear that this school or that has dropped a T/L in favour of more computers or another class teacher. (no offence class teachers - I know it's a numbers game) Blessed be the librarians of the world - wherever they are!
