Courier Mail: Spreading the Word on Books
An article in QLD's Courier Mail, accompanied by a splendid photograph of students, featured the good work of teacher librarians in Queensland who are building students' literacy. Activities highlighted in the article included reading and writing workbooks with children's author Aleesah Darlison, and the Premier's Reading Challenge.
In a follow up to the article, Queensland teacher librarian, Marie Miegel's letter to the editor was picked as the letter of the day. Her letter highlighted that many school libraries do not have a teacher librarian and this role is quickly disappearing. Many parents are unaware of this situation.
