6 Northern Territory Library - Public Libraries and Knowledge Centres June 2010 NEWSLETTER WelcomeNewStaff Hi! My name is Pip Barry and Im delighted to be the new Project Coordinator with the Public Libraries and Knowledge Centres team. Ill be working on a project called Bonding, Bopping and Books, which is an arts based community library program designed to increase family and community involvement with early childhood learning opportunities. Over the past five years I have worked in Melbourne as a Music Therapist using creative approaches to support children and their families in special education schools and cancer hospitals. This has included use of musical instrument playing, singing new and familiar songs, dance and movement, creating CDs, storytelling with books, imaginative play, craft activities, balloon art and drawing. Bonding, Bopping and Books has been funded for 6 months through the Parent and Community Engagement (PaCE) Program, Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR). I hope to offer an arts-based community library program during Term 3, 2010 in Angurugu, Groote Eylandt. Hey, my name is Emily Palmer and Im the temporary Records Officer for the Public Libraries and Knowledge Centres team. I have been working here for three months now and am enjoying my time as part of the Northern Territory Library. I finished school in November of last year, after completing the International Baccalaureate program at Kormilda College, and Im taking a gap year in 2010. I have accepted a place in the University of Sydney to read English Literature in 2011 and intend to study to become a secondary school teacher.
