Great School Libraries – Have you been inspired?

FAIR (Freedom of Access to Information and Resources) has joined with The Australian Library and Information AssociationALIA SchoolsAustralian School Library AssociationQueensland School Library AssociationSchool Library Association of NSWSchool Library Association of South AustraliaSchool Library Association of Victoria and Western Australian School Library Association to seek out these inspirational places of learning and discovery.

The FAIR partners said: ‘We will be looking for libraries that help children and young people find reliable information; use the information effectively; think critically; make informed decisions; work productively with others; build knowledge and understanding of the world; safely navigate the internet; communicate and share their ideas; and find great reads to meet personal interests and abilities.’

‘We campaign for qualified library staff in schools. In some schools, students have a head start thanks to the principal's willingness to invest in a well staffed, well funded school library. In other schools, while parents may not realise it, their children are disadvantaged because of the lack of qualified staff and/or insufficient funds to provide adequate services.’
