    One of our partners, Harrap Computer Systems, who produce the Libresoft Librarian Library Management system, have a special offer for our schools. If an existing Libresoft Librarian school refers a school that currently uses a different system, or has no system, both the existing school and the referred school will receive a £100 discount off their next Librarian invoice as a thank you. For more information, please see here.


    Texts that Tempt - Summer Term

    by Hampshire School Library Service - (SLS HQ) -

    Wanting to broaden your knowledge of children’s resources?

    Need help on where to start?

    The SLS has devised a virtual one-hour video to introduce you to what is currently available. It will include fiction and non-fiction, linking texts to the curriculum as well as identifying books to read aloud, reading for greater depth, for pleasure and just for fun!

    This summer term we will be releasing two CPD videos - one focusing on Early Years & KS1 and the other focusing on KS2.

     Delegates will:

    • Improve their knowledge of contemporary authors and titles

    • Gain ideas of resources to encourage reading for pleasure

    • Be more aware of the range of SLS services available to support them

    Cost - £20 per school per video for subscribing schools

    The videos will be released on:

    8th May – KS1

    8th May – KS2

    Videos will be accessed via the SLS Moodle and will be available for unlimited viewing until 24th October 2021.

    Please complete the form to sign up.
