Thank you Ben for nominating me for Star Librarian
“My school librarian, Sara Davis from Wanaka Primary School is kind, fun and friendly. She is always welcoming and has a nice smile. Sara lets us come into the library any time to read, play board games and work. The library is always tidy, bright and colourful.
“She reads us awesome stories including her own book. Yes, that's right - Sara is a children's author. Her great book is called Queasy Kea. Story time during lunch is very popular because Sara reads with great expression and asks lots of questions about the story.
“She has some fun ideas too, like ‘Blind Date with a Book' on Valentine's Day. Sara wrapped up interesting random books and included a brief description about the book on the wrapping. Then students got to choose any wrapped book to take home and read. It was a cool surprise to discover a great book called Pirates' Cove.
“My teacher said Sara often works extra hours and is an extremely confident librarian. She is always helpful if you need to find a book. She chooses fantastic books for our library. “Our star librarian teaches year 5 and 6 library leaders to scan books, check shelves and be welcoming to visitors to the library. Sara has created a school library blog where you can find students' book reports and interesting things about our school.
“Sara runs a ‘Secret Book Club' to help struggling and reluctant students to enjoy reading. Sara is definitely an awesome star librarian”
