The winner is Lois and Clark!
JABBICA went to Audubon.
Currently Lois and Clark and Captain America are out on loan but the other two books are on display in the Graphic Novels section.
Lent has been a busy time here in the Wodehouse Library.
Year 11s spent two of their wellbeing lessons with us learning about plagiarism avoidance using the study skills books and the Encyclopedia Britannica online resource.
Year 9 boys also visited the library for two lessons to work on their history projects. During these lessons boys used Ormiston (the Dulwich College Register) and the Dulwich College War Record, Ancestry.com and other online resources to research an OA who was killed during World War 1.
This year’s Free Learning Day for year 10 saw the Library and Archives team up to deliver 5 sessions exploring Christopher Marlowe’s connections to Dulwich College, conspiracy theories, fake news and fact-checking.
As part of the Trinity Schools Group, Dulwich College hosted the TSBA ceremony which saw author Stewart Foster win with his novel Bubble Boy.
We’ve maintained the usual displays of fiction and non-fiction in and around the library, added new stock and been glad of the continued help of prefects and pupil librarians with on-going weeding and tidying projects. We’re looking forward to seeing both boys and staff over the next few days choosing holiday reading!
Have a great Easter break, everyone, and see you in the Summer Term.
With Christmas approaching, the TBR pile needs some attention!
Here are our current reads:
When you’re in the Wodehouse over the next week be sure to check out the displays featuring serpents, snakes and Orson Scott Card. The new non-fiction gets a bit more space after the Study Skills books were shifted to the Reference Section and, as usual, new fiction items are handily placed just inside the Inner Room.
On the Issue Desk we’re showcasing the TSBA shortlist for 2017 which takes the senses as its theme:
We’re looking forward to hosting the prize ceremony here at Dulwich College next March so watch this space for more news about that. In the meantime, enjoy reading the books!
No, not that winner. We mean the winner of the 2016 Stan Lee Excelsior Award!
JABBICA winner is (drumroll…)
