Library Lovers’ Day 2019

Chisholm Catholic College Library > #Reading

Library Lovers’ Day 2019 was more successful than last year! This year we had over 50 students and staff participated in our annual Blind Date with a Book. The books were thoughtfully chosen for each participant and wrapped with love by the Library Reader Leaders. We had some very excited students (and teachers) collecting their book date today. We hope the Chisholm Community continue their enthusiasm and enjoyment for reading throughout the year.

The Somerset Celebration of Literature Festival is an annual event where acclaimed authors from around Australia hold interactive sessions and workshops to celebrate reading and writing. This year Chisholm College invited 20 students across Years 10-12 to attended the Festival. On the day, students enjoyed listening to and engaging in discussions with popular Australian authors including: Richard Fidler, Cath Crowley and Jessica Watson. Some students were even lucky enough to meet Cath Crowley, author of ‘Words in Deep Blue’ and ‘Graffiti Moon’, and get their books signed.
