As a School Librarian you may sometimes feel isolated and in need of someone to talk to. The SLA encourages the setting up of local Branches to enable members to meet together for mutual support. Branches often run events and courses locally. Members can belong to the Branch where they work, or one where they live if that is different.
We have also created a Toolkit for branch committee members, covering information such as branch stationery, guidance notes and sample documents for you to use. This is also available as an Online Branch Toolkit (you will need to be logged in as a member).
There are currently three National SLA Branches and eighteen Local or Regional Branches. Details of each are given on the linked pages below. If there is no Branch in your area and you would like information about starting one, please contact the SLA office on 01793 530166.
NEW! In an effort to improve our services to members working around the globe we are pleased to inform you that the SLA now has a ‘virtual’ branch which gives overseas members the opportunity of networking with one another via email. If you would like to sign-up, please contact ann.adams[at]sla.org.uk who will email the necessary authorisation form to you for completion.
