Pupil Library Assistant of the Year Award 2016

PLAAFew School Libraries function without some help from a cohort of pupil helpers.  Their duties are many and various and depend on the needs of each librarian in post.  What is certain is the value of the role these pupils play in assisting in the organisation of the library and supporting the management of the resources held there.   They act as mentors, as reading advocates, ICT trouble shooters, crowd controllers and as new title scouts. In truth most do a measure of all of these things and much more besides.  The other certainty is that the contribution these young people make to their school community is invaluable and worthy of wider recognition.  Step forward the Pupil Library Assistant of the Year Award!

The Award is now in its second year, and nominations are open with the deadline set for the end of October 2015.  Librarians may nominate one pupil from their school and the criteria are firm but fair.  Have a think then about who gives that extra something in your school library.  Which of your wonderful students deserves to be put forward for this?  All you need to know has been posted on the PLAA website  and the judging panel eagerly await reading about the contributions that these special young people make to your working life, and to the lives and their fellow students.
