‘Nurturing the life-long reader’
10:00am Gerri Judkins, Librarian, Southwell School

Gerri, Librarian at Southwell School, will be presenting this
session ‘Nurturing the Lifelong Reader’ at the IASL
Conference in Brisbane in September. She will be highlighting
ways in which to connect students with books to feed their
minds and souls – books that give them a greater appreciation
of the wonders of the world – its science, history and possible
futures, the people who inhabit it and their relationships. Along with the NZ
Book Council Writers in Schools scheme and Wayne Mills’ Kids Lit Quiz will be
ideas from the Southwell Library programme, other NZ librarians and from the
2009 IASL Conference in Italy.
Bring along your favourite strategies to share…

As schools get to grips with all sorts of digital literacies, this is
another medium we need to think about…
