Welcome to SLA Kent, a regional branch of the School Library Association, where you can find out about who we are and what we do. 

Please note that your school does not need to be a member of the SLA for you to attend our meetings (although preferential rates apply if there is a charge for an event). 

Do contact us to join in with our events, or help us organise what you, as a local member would like to see.


Chair: Lisa Daisy

Secretary: Philippa Rose

Committee: Jasmine Brown, Jackie Grant, Luna Glucksberg, Chantal Kelleher, Brenda Marshall
