School Library Design Award 2011 Shortlist Announced

The shortlist for the SLA School Library Design Award 2011, sponsored by Demco Interiors, has been announced. The five finalists (in no particular order) are:

  • The Rosendale Library Bus, London
  • Simon Balle School, Hertford
  • St John's School, Marlborough
  • St Mary's School, Stockport
  • The Elms School, Long Eaton, Notts

The shortlist was selected by a panel who judged all the entries across a set of criteria:  inviting/improved library image; space planning; educational objectives; technology and engagement; consultation.  The panel was impressed by the quality of the entries and admitted that it was a difficult task shortlisting six from the high level and quality of entrants.  

Representatives of the panel are now visiting each school and the winner will be announced at an exciting Awards evening in London and will share the stage with the 2011 School Librarian of the Year Award Winner. The winning schools will win products for their libraries and there will be additional prizes for the runners up, all donated by Demco Interiors.

The Award is a new initiative, supported by the School Library Association and sponsored by Demco Interiors, to highlight the innovation, commitment, flair and foresight found in school libraries across the UK and to set future standards for the recognition of excellence in school library design.Slalda Logo Medium
