Exciting Times!

So today is an exciting day on multiple fronts. 

Firstly, it saw the publication of the latest profile for the School Librarian of the Year 2018 Award. The ceremony is being held in London on 9th October, and there we will announce the winner, but the Honour List is incredible. 

Secondly, due to adjusting the timeline for next year's award we are opening the nominations early - now in fact! The nomination forms and guidelines are here: https://www.sla.org.uk/slya-2019.php  

Thirdly, today saw the official launch of the Great School Libraries campaign

It's a three year campaign spearheaded by SLA, CILIP SLG and CILIP. The campaign has three aims: to secure school library funding; to produce a national framework for school libraries and recognition of school libraries within the Ofsted framework.

The Campaign working group will be aiming to engage all potential stakeholders – whether that’s school library staff, parents, and school leadership or decision makers in government. All children deserve a great school library because adequately funded, staffed school libraries deliver enhanced and independent learning as well as reading and curriculum support. School libraries contribute to building lifelong readers and support whole school initiatives promoting reading for pleasure.
