Celebrate Libraries Week with new membership offer

NLT New Strapline

From today members of the School Library Association and the National Literacy Trust will be able to take advantage of a reciprocal 10% membership discount.

To celebrate the collaboration, and to mark the start of Libraries Week (8-13 October), the School Library Association and the National Literacy Trust are also offering one primary school and one secondary school the chance to win one year's free membership to both organisations. Simply enter online and the winner will be announced on Monday 15th October.

  • Membership of the School Library Association is available for everyone involved with school libraries and offers an advisory service, exclusive information and resources, training and CPD, a mentoring scheme and much more

  • Membership of the National Literacy Trust offers early years, primary and secondary education professionals inspiring resources, school improvement tools, and training and CPD to support literacy in their setting

Alison Tarrant, Chief Executive of the School Library Association, said: “I am really pleased to be able to offer this reciprocal discount as not only does it offer fantastic value to schools at a time when school budgets are under tremendous pressure, but it also offers the whole school holistic support for developing pupils’ literacy skills. It is generally understood that literacy is essential in playing a full role in society, and by becoming a member of both the School Library Association and the National Literacy Trust, staff will receive the best support for developing literacy and reading skills – and all the additional benefits that result from this.”

Jonathan Douglas, Director of the National Literacy Trust, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the School Library Association to offer our members new opportunities to help pupils discover the joys of reading by making their school libraries and reading spaces fun, exciting and inspiring places to go. Children who enjoy reading are more likely to succeed at school and later in life, so we must continue to do everything we can to help children fall in love with reading for a lifetime.”

The discount will be effective from the point of renewal for existing members and immediately for any new members signing up from today.
