Here in New Zealand, we are celebrating the 125th anniversary of Women's Suffrage - the exact date being 19 September.
We are busy celebrating this world-first occasion here at the library, and hopefully raising awareness of voting rights for all people around the world.
One of our teachers sent out a link to make paper camellia flowers - which are a symbol of the suffrage movement here in NZ - so of course, the challenge was on to make some for the library. Finicky work - but well worth the effort. Do drop us an email if you would like a copy of this particular poster - it is not on the site, but I'm happy to share it. :)
We've finally finished a number of bookmarks ready for launching to the world. These bookmarks will be emailed out in A4 format, all ready for printing at your place. With six bookmarks per page, it is up to you to decide on how many you want to print out. We try and print ours out on some nice heavy, glossy card for best effect. A quick lamination also works wonders, and helps the bookmarks last a lot longer - and they make great prizes and incentives for students (and grown ups) to make the reading experience all that bit sweeter. If you do have any suggestions, to contact us through the usual 'Order/Contact' page, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
