Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure student access to high quality school library services.

Our vision is that every student has access to a dynamic, well-resourced school library run by qualified library staff.

Wall of Support

"Every school needs a school library—it’s a no-brainer. Reading underlies every area of the curriculum and the key is having a well stocked school library and a passionate school librarian who can put the right book into the right hands at the right time."

Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton
