The aim of the Great School Libraries campaign is to advocate for school libraries, improve knowledge about their impact and effectiveness to policy makers and leaders in education and ultimately to ensure that every child has access to a school library and librarian, wherever they live and whatever their circumstance. We know that school libraries,school library services and their staff make a significant impact on children and school staff.
We want to have a bold unifying vision for school libraries that all school library staff can stand behind and know the campaign is advocating for them. We know what school libraries need in the medium to long term to ensure the future of the profession and be at the heart of the school’s educational processes but want to know what you think about where school libraries are now and where they need to go in the future. We can only do this together.
School library staff (and SLS staff) can take the survey here. If you're not a member of school library staff but want to let us know what you think, get in touch via our email (we will respond in the new year).
