Book buying excitement!

A few months ago our PTSA, on behalf of the library, was the recipient of a grant from the Masonic Charitable Trust.  This fund was to enable us to buy some popular non-fiction to increase our stock of the sort of thing that might hook non-readers into enjoying books.  Drawing non-readers into the library is a focus here and we really hope that this initiative will have a great knock on effect.  There are many students here who love to read and our fiction issues are really high, but non-fiction readers don't use the library as much as the fiction readers and we hope that these new books might draw in some new library users who discover through them that books are great.

In the photo are Aiden, Nathaniel and Micah, all regular contributors to this blog and active BookGang members, who came shopping with me to help choose the books.  We encouraged people to write in our suggestions book the kind of things they wanted us to get hold of and we tried really hard to respond to their requests.  This is the buying team after our trip to the University Book Shop, these guys just can't wait to get their hands on the new books as soon as the PSTA and the men from the Masonic Trust have checked them out.
