SLA Berkshire

SLA Berkshire

We are an active branch with a range of activities annually. We always welcome new members, so come and join us. You can watch this video of the Berkshire committee members introducing themselves.

At a committee meeting early September 2020 the committee voted unanimously to change the name of the branch from SLA Central and East Berkshire to SLA Berkshire to reflect the widening membership of the area.

Pupil Librarian Focus 2nd February 2022

A successful meeting with a focus around Pupil Librarians. Alison Tarrant spoke on the SLA Pupil Librarian Toolkit and Pupil Library Assistant Award. Members shared their top tips. It was a really great meeting and I came away with lots of ideas to implement in my Library. Especially taking a photo of the returns trolley before my Pupil Librarians shelve the books so I can check they are in the right place - a big thanks to Clare Swanson for that tip!
