Support for school librarians

I am the President of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) and have worked for almost twenty-seven years with books and reading. For over a decade I have specialised in children's books and children's literacy, and I work all over the country with school children and teachers helping them to enjoy everything to do with reading and writing. I provide extensive library consultancy and also undertake public speaking about books, reading and libraries.

I deliver courses for librarians including;

  • Getting Boys Reading

  • The Outstanding School Library

  • Supporting Literacy in the School Library

  • Blogging and Social Media for the School Librarian

  • Teaching Research Methods

  • The School Librarian as Teacher

  • To Band, or Not To Band - reading schemes and the school library
