News from The Arthur Holt Library

If you didn’t already know, The Arthur Holt Library runs a weekly co-curricular for boys who love to read, called Arthur’s Readers. Less a conventional book club, and more an opportunity to talk about books, the group meets every Monday lunchtime in the library.

While most book clubs are quiet, sedate affairs, Arthur’s Readers prides itself on being fun (and a little loud). This term, the boys read proof copies of soon-to-be-published books, shared their favourite reads via blog posts and reviews and put together an article that will soon be published in Trinity News detailing the books that they think you will enjoy based on those that you have already read. Oliver Kreis even produced some beautiful map drawings to accompany the boys’ recommendations.

If you lean more towards the visual, the Library is also home to Movie Club. Senior boys are invited to come up to the Library every Wednesday after school at 3.50pm to enjoy an eclectic mix of films from around the world. The theme for next term is zombies, and popcorn will be provided.

If you think that you might be interested in joining Movie Club, Ms Rafaelle will be running a short information session during recess on Wednesday of Week 10.

Week 10 is also when you need to bring any overdue books back before the term break and it’s a great opportunity to do some holiday borrowing.

“I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.” – Roald Dahl

“Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.” – Louis L’Amour
