From May half term, make sure that you visit the library to see the World Cup themed displays, competitions and a plethora of other football themed events.
A national Tumblr campaign to express discontent over the lack of diversity in children’s literature begins today and Senior Librarian Kalika Puri is keen to help add some Bablake voices to this.
There will be a public call for action nationally at 1pm today that will spread over the next three days. The campaign begins with a visual social media campaign using the hashtag #WeNeedDiverseBooks and the campaigners would like people to post on their blogs, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter et al to help make the hashtag go viral.
Our pupil librarians will be posting photos, as well as supporting the Twitter chat planned and the #DiversifyYourShelves initiative set for Saturday May 3rd.
