On Friday 24th May, Dianella library sent a representative to Banksia Montessori School to read a story to the children. The librarian discussed the library services with the children and presented each Kindy aged-child with a Better Beginnings library bag and complimentary book.
Visiting your local library with your child is a wonderful way to encourage a love for books and reading. Arrange for your child to have his/her own library card and allow them to loan a couple of books at each visit. Explain to your child that (just like Banksia library days) they are ‘borrowing’ the books and will need to return them by the due date. They will need to take good care of the books to ensure other children will be able to enjoy them after they have finished with them.
