It has been a wonderful start to the year in the Library with many students browsing the bookshelves and borrowing books to take home to read.
Library lessons for Prep-Year 3 have begun and it is great to have students borrowing books to take home. Borrowing is done in P – 3 library lessons however students can also borrow before school (from 8.30am) and during lunch breaks from Monday – Thursday. Could you please ensure your child brings their library bag to each lesson and that library books are returned on time.
We have a new Library mascot this year, Buzz the Book Bird and students have been enjoying seeing what Buzz has been reading each week in the Library.
Reading Beads Program
We are continuing the Reading Beads program this year and all students have the opportunity to collect beads for reading Thornlands State School Library books. Notes will be handed out during library lessons this week for students interested and not already in the program in Prep – Year 3. Students in Year 4 – Year 6 please come to the library to collect a note if you would like to sign up to the program.
Library at Lunchtime
It has been lovely this year watching children work and play together in the library during lunch time. We have students borrowing, reading books, drawing, colouring in and creatively constructing with the Lego and felt boards. Many students utilise this nice cool space at lunch time and it has been wonderful watching the younger and older students work so well together.

We have had a great first few weeks of reading and I am looking forward to seeing lots of students in the Library in the weeks to come.
