Queensland Flood Recovery – Brassall State School

My second week volunteering at Brassall State School made the enormity of the task at hand very clear .   The donations are still coming in…. with a pallet of books coming from Tasmania, a Brisbane high school making donations just to mention a few.  People’s generosity is breath taking…….. so so so  lovely.   There is some extraordinary books  – three quarters of the library is filled with boxes!!   There is still no computer system…. which maybe is not such a bad thing as the books all have to be cleaned, sorted, stamped, covered, bar-coded and then cataloged. It is overwhelming to look at the sheer amount of books and resources ….. better to focus on one box at a time.  Hopefully Mum and I can make a little difference.

NoneQueensland Flood Recovery – Brassall State School

Ipswich is still recovering from recent flooding.  It will be for some time.  I felt that I hadn’t really helped in the recovery enough.  We had made donations when needed but that almost felt too easy considering what people were going through.  So with Ben settled into Pre-Prep I have time on my hands to lend a hand.  I signed Mum and I up at Brassall State School.     The library lost everything!  It is  so uplifting to see the donations,  from the public,  publishers, church groups, other schools or community organisations.  Books are coming from everywhere and by the pallet!!   There is a huge job ahead to cover and process all the resources and this is where we can help.  I will volunteer either on a Monday or Tuesday for the next…. however many weeks – covering books.  Every hand makes a difference xoxo
