IASL 2012 Conference, 11 to 15 November 2012
This ISLD project involves matched schools making homemade bookmarks (any style, shape etc. – be creative). The students will write the title, author & illustrator, and one or two lines about their favourite book on the back of the bookmarks. The bookmarks will then be shipped in time for distribution for ISLD Day.
If you would like to become involved in this project, you will need to send the following information to the ISLD coordinator, Rick Mulholland:
Every few weeks until early September 2007, a new list of schools will be sent to the participating schools to choose a match. Matching will be taking place on a regular basis and it is vital that you provide us with contact information during your respective school holidays. Last year many people missed out on matches because we could not contact them.
For more information or to add your name to the list of participating schools, contact:
Rick Mulholland, ISLD coordinator
As part of the ongoing development of materials for school library personnel to use, the International School Library Day Committee would like to create a slideshow and/or PowerPoint presentation of a collection of photos of different school libraries worldwide. This media will then be available for downloading to use for your ISLD celebrations and/or promotion. Please send any photos that you are willing to submit for this purpose to the ISLD coordinator, Rick Mulholland.
You will be required to provide a statement that you are the copyright owner or have permission from the copyright owner to submit for this purpose. Permission forms are available from the ISLD coordinator, Rick Mulholland.
The Email Around the World project started in 2001. I thought greeting schools from around the world was a good way to celebrate International School Library Day. The messages from 2001/2 are on the IASL site while those for 2003-2006 are on the School Library Association of Queensland (SLAQ) website. I think these are quite a good educational resource in themselves.
It’s really quite simple – people send me their email address and I add it to the list at EdNa, then on ISLD in October we all send a message to the EdNA list and everyone gets it.
I try to think of something that’s easy to do but interesting and hopefully educational each year but it’s getting harder!
We have been trying to limit the number of emails to 1 or 2 per school because otherwise it can become a bit of a problem, but you can cut and paste as many responses into those 1 or 2 emails as you like.
I usually print the messages out and display them in the library, linking them to the country on a world map, but they are all available on the SLAQ website for the children to read.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Cherie Sherley, Teacher Librarian, Mackay North State Primary School, Queensland, Australia
