Big Purple Bus & Library Books

Big Purple Bus & Library Books

Roll up, roll up, Great Marlow School announces an up and coming event on December 6th. Ms Fisher knows it is not the purple double decker as unveiled by JK Rowling in ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban’, but it is no less impressive.
The BIG PURPLE BUS is fitted with computers downstairs and 4000 books upstairs. Some GMS students will be invited on board to do a little research, and then, armed with a scanner, invited upstairs to choose some books for the school library. Browns the booksellers have, certainly, come up with an innovative way to promote books.
It is hoped that this will create a school wide, student buzz for books. Students will be directly involved in choosing books for the shelves of the library. Some books will tie into the successful Accelerated Reader Scheme, others will be just for the joy of reading. Parents, carers, teachers and students, who are interested in knowing the named titles on the Accelerated Reading Programme, can find the information by entering AR Bookfinder, the Renaissance Reading Programme, in a search engine.
So ding ding, all aboard: let’s begin researching  books!

GMS thank the librarian, Annette Fisher for organising this great event and Browns Bookseller for supplying the bus.
