School Library Camp, Midlands

For the second year running the Midlands will host a School Library Camp.
This year we have decamped (sorry!) to the north of the region and the 2015 event will be held at the University of Derby’s main campus at Keddleston Road.
More details about the location here:
We will be shamelessly using the same date as Darren’s Manchester event which is Saturday 11th July of course. Doors open 10:00 and we expect to be finished and wiping up cake crumbs by 3:00pm.

At last year’s event we discussed all sorts of stuff from our policies towards noise to using Minecraft. What will you discuss this year? Pitch your ideas or see what others want to talk about here:
We look  forward to seeing you there!

LibCamp Midlands

Are you working, or living near the Midlands?  If so, this event may be for you.  LibCamp Midlands is on the 14th June, from 10.30 – 3.30 at Malvern St. James.  To book, or to find out more about the event, click here.  Please also go on the wiki to suggest ideas for the camp.   If you haven’t been on a Library Camp before – do go, they are really great, user run events.  Tickets are free, but you will have to register for a ticket on the site to gain admission, to help with venue numbers.

School Library Camps

Are you going to a school Library Camp this summer?  This is a fantastic opportunity to network with other school librarians in your area, and best of all – they are free!  They also take place on a Saturday so you don’t have to worry if you are a solo librarian, or worry if you are not allowed out.  All it will cost is your travel to and from the venues – what a bargain!  The four camps all take place on June 14th, in Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow and London.  There are plans to link all four camps during the day with social media – Skype, Twitter, Blogs etc.  You need to get a ticket to the event, for number purposes, although, as I said, the tickets are free.   Tickets to the four events are available via Eventbrite here:



North West (Manchester);

Yorkshire (Leeds);

Scotland (Glasgow);


Book your place today to avoid disappointment!
