A good number of school librarians from all over the Wellington region braved the challenging weather in early April to attend the first SLANZA bookshop night at Paper Plus in Lower Hutt. With the whole shop to ourselves we spent time perusing the shelves and catching up with fellow librarians to see how the year had started. Thanks to John Vallely's hospitality we also got to take away free books, bookmarks and book bags and stock up on brand new books for our collections.
Afterwards, we relocated to a nearby restaurant for more food and drink and another chance to renew friendships and meet some new members. Thank you everyone involved- it was a great night.
