Miss Kara's Library

TERM 2 : 2022


The level of interest in
Graphic Novels has exploded!

Our students here just love them... A regular purchase of new Graphic Novels (what we use to call Comics) and the kids go wild!
Some of them don't even make it onto the shelves...
I have cases for these types of books that are usually empty!

Issue 4 : OUT NOW

Please send your order/s to the office in a sealed envelope... don't forget to write your childs name and room number on the order form!

Pasifika Super Heroes


A new bundle of 7 bilingual books by David Riley have just hit our shelves!

On display or under 398 in our "Legend" Section

Samoan Language Week

27th May - 3rd June

Celebrating Samoa

TATAU : A History of Samoan Tattooing

A new book, that's on it's way but will be a great asset to our library resources! This will be Teacher Resource that I'm sure they will be happy to share with their students :)

I have heaps of books about Samoa... but for this week most of them get snapped up pretty quick by the teachers to share with their students and neighbouring classrooms!

Welcoming this collection to our library!


Read all about the adventures of Meg and Mog (and Owl) in a new collection that will be hitting our shelves in the next couple of days! These characters have been around for years but are a first for our library! Exciting!

You can find these funky picture books under N or on display!

I have a feeling these will be popular because they are an easy read for beginners and great for parents to read too!
