New Kindle book available
We have just launched an ebook edition of "New Beginnings: A Practical Guide to Taking Charge of a Secondary School Library" by Laura Taylor, available now on Amazon Kindle (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B087GFLGTD).
At these times we are offering reduced priced publications, both online and for selected physical copies (for as long as deliveries are available). Due to the restrictions of pricing e-publications there is a single price for both members and non-members. These can be bought directly from Kindle (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B087GFLGTD) at the moment and we will be exploring wider provision in the near future. We would welcome suggestions of other SLA publications you'd like as e-publications – please use the contact form (https://www.sla.org.uk/contact).
The paperback edition of "New Beginnings" is still available direct from the SLA at https://www.sla.org.uk/product/new-beginnings-a-practical-guide-to-taking-charge-of-a-secondary-school-library – enter voucher code CPD2020 to receive a 10% discount.
About the book
Taking charge of a secondary school library should be a pleasure, but can be a challenge to those who are unprepared. Experienced practitioner, trainer and consultant, Laura Taylor, who has worked in school libraries in the UK and abroad, takes us through the process of taking ownership of your new library and post. She holds your hand from the first day and first week. Full of excellent advice and common sense, Laura guides you skilfully past the pitfalls, tells both fresh beginners and new appointees the questions to ask, the strategies to adopt and the planning to do to bring success both to you and to your school library.
