Where you been?

 

On the left is a display I made in November for a library event at Altona for Fiona McIntosh’s afternoon tea visit to promote her brand new title, The Tea Gardens.

It was a great afternoon and this is the second event we have hosted for Fiona McIntosh.  https://www.penguin.com.au/books/the-tea-gardens-9780143789833

On the right is a whimsical tattoo done by an amazing artist and mate, @tashiko – http://www.tashikotattoo.com/

I’m in need of some new work but as per usual, it gets bumped down the list of importance. Such is life.

Summer Reading Club – Harry Potter style

Harry Potter needs a sanctuary away from the world, just like the rest of us. Display I made to tautoko the Summer Reading program to engage our rangatahi.

Behind this smile

New decal up on the window at my home library site, Altona North featuring Whaea Ripeka. Part of the #behindthissmile campaign being launched on Saturday at Williamstown Library. Speaking of Willy library one of my clever co- workers made a wee display featuring the funny signs by Reddit user obviousplant, the small sign says #37 Dudes who lost their shirts. All of the community inclusiveness and laughs are to be had at your local public library.

Dolly

20140408-212248.jpg

Dolly Parton is on the front cover of the most recent Incite magazine at work. Thatʻs the librarian magazine published for members of ALIA. She has a foundation called Imagination Library that gives children in four countries a book per month from birth until their fifth birthday. This encourages the child to read with help from their family. Imagination Library has joined with a not for profit called United Way Australia to launch the initiative here in Australia. One of the first places to benefit is Doveton, an extremely underprivileged and socially disadvantaged area in the outer South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I know because this is where I grew up, went to school, and the first library I belonged to was at Autumn Place, Doveton. This initiative of giving children the chance to start reading and build their own library at home gives me hope for the future of young readers in Doveton and other impoverished areas. Dolly Parton is a great performer and a staunch humanitarian and philanthropist. Sheʻs done alright for a dirt poor girl from the Smoky Mountains. Thank you very much for your tireless work in entertainment but even moreso, your inspiration to other dirt poor girls who just love to read.
