Who said books are dead?

Who said books are dead? Not in the Beaconhills College libraries, where borrowing rates are through the roof, bucking the wider trends of declining reading rates.

This is thanks in part to initiatives such as categorising books into genres (as in books shops), displaying books with the covers facing outwards to make them more appealing and generally making the libraries vibrant community spaces. Regular author visits, numerous student clubs and reading programs are all part of the recipe for success.
