New resources 2017

As a result of some restructuring and renovation, Dee Why Library has disposed of some of its print and digital resources. 

We were pleased to receive a substantial collection of  ‘talking books’ on a number of topics and covering a range of ability levels. If you are tutoring a student, these books with accompanying CDs may be useful. 

You can inspect them at the office in William St Brookvale or contact the coordinators for more information.

Meeting for Tutors of Tibetan Students

On March 6 a small group of tutors supporting Tibetan beginner students met informally to share resources and ideas, following a meeting last year. We were encouraged and inspired by one another’s experiences with the challenges and fun of teaching beginners. Next time we hope to meet with tutors of more advanced Tibetan students to share ideas. Thank you to all those who were able to attend.
