The ‘Lose Yourself in a Book’ poster campaign, designed and created by Kingsbury High School’s Library and its own Creative Team, was launched on World Book Day 2012 and is part of a wider campaign to promote reading within the school and in the local community.
To reach out to the community and to show support for local libraries, Kingsbury High School have given a set of the posters for display at Kingsbury Library Plus, Kingsbury Road.
Wendy Levingstone, Manager at Kingsbury Library Plus, was happy to put up the posters in this busy location and said “They really are great and look fantastic on our display boards – children from Kingsbury High School have been looking at the pictures and trying to guess who is behind each book”.
Within the school, there was a competition for students to guess the identity of the well disguised members of staff in the posters. Winners were announced in school assembly on 27th March 2012.
Winner of the competition, Ritik Patel, aged 12, entered the competition as a challenge to see if he would be able to guess all of the members of staff correctly. He said “The posters were really interesting and the books reflected the teachers’ personalities or subjects. The prize was a graphics tablet which works very well and I will use it to draw things.”
Runners up were Ali Keser aged 14 and Sadaf Habibi aged 14.
