How I can help you…

I can provide advice and practical support for school libraries. Here are just a few suggestions for ways that I can help:

Stock editing to remove out-of-date books and auditing to identify gaps in provision.

Creating booklists.

Classifying of non-fiction.

Book banding for Key Stages One and Two.

Recommendations for new stock and assistance with purchasing.

Advice on library layout and furniture.

Support with library computer systems.

Support with writing Foyle Foundation bids to obtain funding for books, library computer equipment and furniture.

INSET sessions on a range of topics including library promotion for teaching staff and children, library information and research skills, setting up and running a book club. Visit my training page for more details.

Library tuition for pupil librarians.

“If we had not had Sue’s professional support, instead of a radical and very positive change, we would have tinkered at the edges, take a huge effort to make relatively insignificant changes, and we would not have seen the benefits that we have seen.”

“The library has been transformed and we are all delighted with what you’ve achieved.”
