Launch of SLS-UK School Library Award

Wednesday, 27 September, 2017

We are delighted to announce that the new national School Library Award is now up and running and SLSs are invited to sign up to administer it in their local authority.


The Award is the first of three potential offers that SLSs might offer individually across the country in due course to help increase both income and reach into schools.

There is no charge to download the necessary paperwork to administer the SLS-UK School Library Award*, however there are terms and conditions to which the SLS Manager will need to agree. However there is no obligation on any SLS to do so - all the offers will be undertaken voluntarily.


Full details and links to documentation are on the ASCEL members website SLS-UK School Library Award

An introduction is also available on the  public website.

*It is designated as "SLS-UK" as this is the term we are using to denote all the SLSs in the ASCEL umbrella and it is a convenient nation-wide label, but it has no status as a brand.
