National Year of Reading

May 14th, 2008

I was reading the CILIP magazines this month (the twice-monthly Gazette and once-monthly Update) and was inspired by a section on the National Year of Reading, specifically looking at how non-public librarians can get involved. There was the suggestion that academic librarians could add support by promoting their local library to students. Anyway, to cut a long story short, my fellow trainee and I have come up with a plan to try and put together a display in for our library promoting the National Year of Reading and local library service. It might even lure one or two of our students into reading some books over the summer when their exams are over. I’ll keep you updated on our progress!
