Celebrate Libraries Week!

Added 03 Oct 2019

To celebrate Libraries Week 2019 we have created three new resources to help you encourage reading for pleasure in your school. Our research shows that good school libraries can have an important impact on pupil development, especially on their reading for pleasure habits. Libraries Week is a great opportunity to remember this and celebrate reading in your school.

These resources can be used in your school library, reading spaces and even the staffroom to help get everyone reading. Focusing on supporting children in how to choose the right book, sharing reading initiative ideas to engage the whole school community in reading and supporting teachers in celebrating reading in the classroom, these resources are free to download for Libraries Week.

The resources include:

  • Many children struggle to choose a book - our how to choose a book poster will help them find just the right book for themselves and can be shared in the school library and classroom.
  • There are lots of ways to celebrate reading in school - share the tried and tested reading initiatives in our resource Brilliant ideas to help you encourage reading with colleagues and see which ones would work best in your school
  • Teachers make great reading role models; our How you can support reading resource will help everyone support reading in the classroom and school library

Further resources

Also available for Libraries Week is our School Library Advocacy resource which will help you make the best use of our libraries research to develop your provision. We support all those working in school libraries through our Love our Libraries programme.
