Somewhere Beyond the Sea and My House in Budapest


This year, we got involved in the Bookmark Exchange Project  2016 as part of International School Library Month. With this year’s theme being ‘Decode your World’ we made transparent bookmarks (see image below) filled with binary computer code and handwritten messages and corner bookmarks with small detailed patterns and pictographs.

It was an exciting experience sending off our bookmarks around the world and receiving bookmarks made by students from two schools in Budapest (Hungary) and one school from Trinidad. 
Bookmarks from St. Augustine Secondary School, Trindad
Bookmarks from Berzenyi Dániel Gimnázium, Hungary
Bookmarks from Kerületi Szinyei Merse Pál Gimnázium, Hungary

Been Around the World

International School Library Month is celebrated annually around the world during October as part of the IASL’s (International Association of School Librarianship) advocacy campaigns.

The LRC at South Sefton College celebrated this year by recruiting new student librarians, going global with the 2016 Bookmark Exchange Project and running a ‘Staff Reads’ promotion around college to let students know what books staff recommend.
