With my other ‘hat’ on, Chair of CILIP School Libraries Group, I am really proud to tell you about the new campaign backed by CILIP that was launched at our 2018 Conference. The Great School Libraries campaign was launched by CEO Nick Poole in his opening speech. Working closely together with the SLA – School Librarians Association – CILIP, CILIPSLG and SLA are campaigning for the end of the closures of school libraries all over the UK. Not only that but we would like to go further and we are stating that every secondary school should have a professionally staffed, fully funded library. Please follow the link to register your support for this campaign, and to watch the presentation to see how we hope to achieve this together.
