To strengthen our libraries ability to enhance our reading programme we have added a new poetry section. A gumball machine that dispenses poems when a token is placed in the slot is now available when classes visit the library. The idea comes from one set up in a small shop in San Francisco called Bibliohead Bookstore. Teachers can hand out a token to a deserving student during their weekly library visit so they can go to the gumball machine and received a poem.
