About the programme
Our school libraries research review shows that school libraries have a positive impact on all areas of pupils’ learning, including the development of reading and writing skills, their wellbeing and overall academic attainment.
Good school libraries also contribute to the development of a reading for pleasure culture. When effectively run by knowledgeable staff, with a range of high quality books and resources, good school libraries can transform whole school reading provision.
Many schools have limited resources and space. Love our Libraries provides inspiration and ideas that will help schools transform reading in their school communities whatever their current provision is.
