This new TV series looks fun - librarians kicking butt and saving the world's antiquities. I like it when mid sword fight Noah Wylie says "You'll be surprised what you can learn in the library". Let's hope it comes to our screens in New Zealand.
Kobe's helping Room 2 with their inquiry in the library. He was working on The Springbok Tour - watching the golden labs chasing bunnies but as he's a black lab he wasn't allowed to play. This made him a bit emotional. You can tell.
Shackleton Bear thinks he might come and live in the Raroa Library - especially as they have such good books to read!
If you or your library wants their own Shackleton Bear go to: http://garethsworld.com/?s=shackleton%20bear&repeat=w3tc
All proceeds from sales of Shackleton Bear go to the Million Dollar Mouse Fund - to eradicate mice from New Zealand’s Antipodes Islands.

Terry Pratchett obviously thinks libraries are a good idea. Terry Deary, author of The Horrible History series and many other books isn't so sure. Read an article about what he has been saying about libraries here.
What do you think about libraries? Start a discussion at Raroa - post a comment or two.
Raroa's library was taken over by IBC films this week so they could film students, Ms Forrest and the library website for the National Library of NZ. The National Library are producing a series of videos to showcase excellence in practice in school libraries and how this positively impacts on student achievement and literacy engagement. It was great fun - Amandie, Alice, Jack, Wynton and the website were stars. Thank you to Lisa Oldham and Linda Forbes from National Library for giving Raroa the chance to show off it's library and thanks to the awesome film crew!
