Welcome to the 2017 School Year!

This term, you will find many new products and ideas that will assist you to keep your library modern, functional and at the forefront of your school, in particular our all new Love your Library range. This range of products will ensure your users have a consistent positive feeling about all the services to do with your library.

We are also excited to have extended our popular range of roll up banners to include a Becoming a Learner, Pop-up Makerspace and iLibrary designs options. In addition to these standard banner products, we now offer a full or partial design service. Our attractive geometric design template allows us to drop in your school or library logo or create your own design (with our assistance of course).

You will love our all new range of vinyl lettering quotes available in your choice of colour to your library. Alternatively, we encourage you to create your own Word Wall using our examples or your own wording by following the easy step by step guide on page 50.

At Syba Academy we are passionate about delivering relevant, quality and accredited professional learning to support teachers and teacher-librarians. In 2017 we have a decided to focus on programs that place school libraries at the heart of teaching and learning in your school. We invite you to join us at one of the following accredited professional learning opportunities:

  • Literary Learning and Literacy Festival: Designing for literary learning and literacy across the Australian Curriculum
  • Digital Citizenship Online Extension Courses

The highlight of our business is the relationships we develop with our customers. We love talking with you, guiding you with your purchases and meeting you at our seminars and workshops. We trust our well established relationships will develop even further this year and that we ‘meet’ many more of you.
