Has your library got lively décor, funky furniture, brilliant books…BUT no children?
Have you recently invested time and money on refurbishing or improving your school library, but need help encouraging the children to use it?
Are you stuck for ideas on how to enthuse your children about your school library?
Do all of your colleagues and pupils know how to use the library and are they aware of the resources available?
Would you like to set up and run a school book club?
If you would like help with any of these then come along to this course.
During the day delegates will be given straightforward, great ideas to organise and use in the library. They will explore:
Ways to involve children and teaching staff in promoting and using the library
Who uses the library? Why are others not using it and ways to change this
How the library supports the National Curriculum
Library Information Skills to help the children make better use of the resources
Reading for Pleasure and the available resources to support this
Setting up and running a book club
Planning and promotion - author visits and other special events
Time will be allowed for action planning and delegates will leave with a wealth of ideas to put into practice and raise the profile of their school library.
