SLA Northern Ireland

Welcome to SLA Northern Ireland, a regional branch of the School Library Association, where you can find out about who we are and what we do.

Please note that your school does not need to be a member of the SLA for you to attend our meetings (although preferential rates apply if there is a charge for an event).

Do contact us to join in with our events, or help us organise what you, as a local member would like to see.
