National Week 2012

Your chance to win a School Library Makeover

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

To celebrate the release of ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul’ movie, Sunrise want to give one deserving school $20,000 towards a brand new library makeover!

All you need to do is produce a video explaining why your school library needs a makeover (plus mention how excited you are for the release of the new movie!). This is a fantastic opportunity to collaboratively engage the school community in promoting the importance of the school library.

Run don't walk, entries close on 30th June, 2017. For more information and full terms and conditions please visit the Sunrise website.

While $20,000 would certainly be nice, you can achieve a full professional library signage makeover for $3000 - $10,000.

Are you planning a makeover or do you have a new or newly refurbished library? Contact us today if you would like to book an obligation free library signage consultation with one of our professional signage consultants.

See below for a gallery of some of our most recent makeovers.

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.
