How can I help?

Help us spread the word

I’m school library staff


Fill in a case study to demonstrate the impact of your school library or contact us if you would like to write a blog post about a recent library initiative. Print out some of our posters and put them in your library.

Take a look at this document to see how you can make sure your work and activities link to the Osted Framework.




I'm a school governor


Is there a school library?

If not, ask why the school has made this decision and whether they have plans to create one. Explore the Great School Libraries website to find out the reasons having a school library is important.

I’m teaching staff

I’m a parent/carer


Find out if your child’s school has a library. If not then take a look at this leaflet to find out what you can do.

If yes - Does it have a librarian?

  • If yes ask if you can meet them and ask if they know about the campaign and encourage them to sign up.

  • If no - ask which teacher is responsible for the library and ask them if they know about the campaign and encourage them to sign up.

You could also find out if your school had submitted a case study and if not encourage them to do so.

If your child attends a primary school ask if they need any voluntary help.
