Students at Dianella Secondary College have been reminded “This is YOUR Library” and invited to play a key role in guiding their library’s direction.
Running with this year’s Book Week theme, a Suggestions Chest has been established at the library entrance. A Suggestions Form is available for students to provide feedback on the book genres they enjoy, specific book requests and other general feedback. A Genres Poster, with visual book examples, was developed to assist students choose their favourite genres.
The opportunity to win some amazing books at Book Week provides extra incentive for students to have their say and complete feedback forms.
The Suggestions Chest has been promoted via the school newsletter, daily notices, assembly, school Facebook and Instagram. However, one only needs to enter the library to stumble across the eye-catching display!
Feedback has been enthusiastic and plentiful, with early trends logging Adventure, Crime/Mystery, Horror and Graphic Novel popularity with some great new book requests.
Thanks to the students’ involvement Dianella Secondary College Library is set to remain rich with treasure!
