Despite a challenging year, the Great School Libraries Campaign has been busy behind the scenes to advocate and promote the work of school libraries. We are excited to share the results of three projects at this exclusive event: an update on our research, and an introduction to two toolkits that we hope you will find inspiring, useful and practical. Join us online on Thursday 9th December at 7.30pm when we will:

Update you on our research

We’re delighted have been working with Nottingham Trent University to develop some further research into school libraries. All three projects relate to campaign strands: school libraries and pupil wellbeing, the perceptions of senior leaders about school libraries and the impact of inquiry learning.

Launch two toolkits

We’ll introduce two toolkits, and you can find out how to implement them in your school. Barbara Band has created a toolkit focusing on the role that school libraries play in supporting mental health and wellbeing. Elizabeth Hutchinson has created a toolkit which supports research and inquiry learning.

Answer your questions

We’ll have an introduction from Claire Bowles from Peters, and Campaign Chair Caroline Roche will be hosting. Both will be available to answer any questions you have about the campaign. You can let us know what they are when you sign up, or ask on the night.

There will be two prizes of £100s worth of books: one for a primary attendee, and one for a secondary.
