Many thanks to the Bayfield High School New Masters group for painting this Lilliput Library.

This brightly coloured Lilliput Library is under the guardianship of Debby Foster. Go have a look, and take a book.
This beautiful Lilliput Library is the 38th one to be sited in Dunedin. It’s wonderfully bright artistic work was completed by Room 2 at St Leonards School. I’ve got a box of books ready to drop off one day this week – and then it will be ready for you to have a look and take a book.
Port Chalmers School Lilliport Library was launched on Thursday and because of the inclement weather the launch was moved into the school hall. Marnie Waaka and her Room 8 class were the instigators of this library. The children all wrote to me inviting me to come along to their class and talk about Lilliput Libraries and they asked if they could have one as they would be the best guardians ever. So I went and had a chat with them and took along their naked Lilliput Library. Robert Scott, a teacher aide, artist, and singer, painted the Lilliput after receiving heaps of advice from the children. There are 23 children in the class and 23 children feature on their Lilliput Library. The children and Robert wrote a Lilliput Library song which they sang at the opening and we also watched a video the children had made about their school and plans for the Lilliput.
The children had a tour of several Lilliput Libraries early on in their Lilliput project and even visited the Taieri Blokes Shed to see where most of the Lilliputs are made.
After the Library was officially opened we enjoyed a scrumptious morning tea! This library is for the use of the school and all the community.
With an OAR radio recording this week ( going to air on Saturday July 30 at noon on the All good poems wear travelling shoes segment) and this quick tv interview in my lunch break today Lilliput Libraries is in the news. They didn’t have time to film our latest Lilliput Libraries so instead they inserted scenes from the opening of The Valley Project’s fridge/freezer Lilliput Library.
These two libraries are now finished and just waiting for the varnish to dry before they head off to their guardians. I’ll let you know the locations next week.
