The Yorkshire and Humberside branch of the School Library Association was officially ratified in April 2004. Our intention is to offer localised support, host courses and events throughout the region, promote school libraries and their staff, be advocates for school libraries, work with relevant organisations in support of school libraries and, most importantly, be relevant and affordable. Please peruse this website and comment wherever you feel able.

SUMMER SOCIAL AND AGM
We are delighted to invite you to our Summer Social and AGM which will take place this year in the beautiful, historic city of York on Saturday, 18 June from 2.00 – 5.00pm.
News from the Chair, Autumn 2015
Hello to all our regular members and welcome to any new ones. Half term is already a distant memory. I never fail to be surprised at how quickly the weeks pass by – Y7 and Y12 inductions, UCAS, library lessons, and so on, come and go. Before long it will be time for the Christmas Fair…
If you are new to a school which is already a member, please make sure to update the contact details with the national SLA (firstname.lastname@example.org). This will ensure that any mailings reach the correct people.
New Committee Members
We are delighted to welcome two new committee members this year:
Debbie Parker works at The Grammar School at Leeds and Jane Flynn at Hall Cross Academy in Doncaster.
Plans for the coming year at the moment include:
The Spring Term will see a course on ‘Reading levels, Attainment 8 & GCSEs – the library’s critical place’, delivered by Angie Curran in Doncaster.
Early in the Summer Term we hope to arrange a visit to the Brotherton Library, University of Leeds, possibly encompassing an author event and our AGM.
Thoughts for 2016 include courses on copyright and plagiarism, and on mobile devices in the library. Please let us know if you have any suggestions.
Keep your eyes on the website and the events section for more details and a form to complete if you’d like to attend. We will also email round any details of upcoming courses to our regional members.
I look forward to meeting you at one of our courses or social events; it is your support at our events which keeps us going and enables us to bring relevant training to our region.
Sally Dring, Chair SLA-Y&H
