Sorry, that last message should have said International School Library 
ideas. This project is for school libraries in all parts of the world. 
Please consider participating.

School Library Personnel,


In her recent email to her distribution list, Margriet Ruurs (author of a 
number of picture books including My Librarian is a Camel' (Boyds Mills 
Press, ISBN 1590780930) wrote about IBBY Pakistan’s ‘A Book Marks Our 
World’ project with Basarat Kazim, who recently was instrumental in the 
creation of IBBY Pakistan .  I asked Margriet if we could expand this 
program for ISLD and she has given us permission to do this.  I will be 
setting up a database of schools who are interested in participating in the 
bookmark page.  Once we have a number of participants, we will post the 
list of schools and then assist the schools in finding a match.

The project is very simple.  I will collect a list of schools who are 
interested in participating in this project.  We will publish this database 
in a few months.  Once matched to a school in a different part of the 
world, your students will make a homemade bookmark (any style, shape 
etc.  – be creative) and then the students will write the title, author & 
illustrator, and one or two lines about their favourite book on the book 
mark.  You will ship them to your matched school in time for distribution 
for ISLD (October 23).

The purpose of this project and the IBBY Pakistan project is to help to 
promote international understanding and friendship through books.


This one comes from a recent request from a teacher-librarian in Quebec, 
Canada, where the predominate language is French.  She would like to liaise 
with other schools where French is the official language.  She would like 
to develop a list of interested schools to share with her colleagues in 
Quebec.  The main purpose is to celebrate ISLD, but she is hoping to have a 
continuing partnership with the schools beyond October 2006.

For more information on the above projects, or if you are interested in 
participating in either project, contact me at 

If you have an international project in which you would like to involve 
ISLD participants, please contact me at 

Happy celebrations,


ISLD coordinator
