Series: SLA Guidelines · Level: Secondary

Secondary school libraries need to be flexible, inspirational and above all, fit for purpose. Library use is rapidly changing and building design, layout, furnishings and fittings must change too. Here is a completely new Guideline on the subject. Aspects to consider, pitfalls to avoid and ways to successfully manage the project are all included.

This publication aims to give you confidence and advice when you talk to SLT and school colleagues. We hope it will help you to create a vision for this crucial space that can be the heart of the school, a major selling point to parents and above all a pleasing space in which to study, relax and to work, for users and staff.
