Armidale Library Welcomes National Year of Reading 2012

Susanne Gervay visiting as an ambassador for the National Year of Reading 2012Loved flying into Armidale in country New South Wales, over green rolling fields with cows and sheep grazing as an ambassador for the National Year of Reading.

My lucky role was to speak to kids and teachers at Armidale Library and to speak to the girls of PLC Armidale  in the afternoon.

The kids and fantastic librarians from St Mary’s primary School came along. There were some wonderful I Am Jack fans.

Enjoyed beautiful Armidale with its churches, wrought iron buildings, trees and gardens.

My afternoon with the girls of PLC was especially warm. They embraced ‘Ships in the Field’ and their answers about war and dislocation were insightful. Thankyou girls and librarian linda Kolevas.

Thankyou for my welcome from Library manager Ian Greenhalgh and librarian Merril Newberry and new children’s librarian Trini Angeles.
