Two weeks before the lockdown was put in place I started a new position as a library manager (safe to say it's been a very strange start to a job). I manage a library in a secondary school with a sixth form an a small junior school (40 pupils) attached. It's my first time working in a school library and I would be enormously grateful for any advice from other library managers about what's helped them to succeed in their role, or things that they wish someone had told them when they started the job.
Over the next few weeks and months of uncertainty, the Great School Libraries campaign group wanted to do something useful. With schools closing and many now find themselves at home supporting their children's learning. We wanted to offer a place to ask a question if you are a parent looking for resources, a school librarian trying to support your local school community or a teacher we want to be here for you.
