In the first week of semester we launched a new collection at MPOW. The Recreational Reading collection was put together in response to the TEC initiative to enhance literacy skills. We hope that by providing reading for pleasure alongside course related content, that our students and staff will develop their literacy capability.
We’ve been soliciting recommendations from our students and staff for a while so that the collection represents the diversity in taste and genre of our client base. So far, the graphic novel seems to be getting a lot of attention.
A bunch of us dressed up for the occasion and got out into the Hub to pimp the new collection. We took along some of the books, a laptop and a barcode scanner to issue any books if necessary. (That turned out to be the vast sum of 3)!
(That’s me as Lizzie Bennet you know).
It will be interesting to see how it all develops!
