Introduction to the SLA in Spanish

La Asociación de las Bibliotecas Escolares (SLA), tiene su sede en el Reino Unido, aunque cuenta con socios en toda Europa, así como en el resto del mundo. Cualquier persona interesada en el fomento de estas bibliotecas puede afiliarse a nuestra asociación. Todos nuestros materiales están en inglés.

Facilitamos información a todos nuestros socios, así como cursos de capacitación y publicaciones y publicamos nuestra propia revista: "The School Librarian". Tenemos sucursales locales y regionales, situadas en Inglaterra y en Gales, y sucursales nacionales en Escocia, Irlanda del Norte y en la República de Irlanda. También hacemos campañas para el fomento de las bibliotecas escolares, y de sus bibliotecarios. En el 2004 instituímos el "Premio del Bibliotecario Escolar del Año" (SLA School Librarian of the Year Award), con el fin de promocionar las buenas prácticas, que existen en las bibliotecas escolares. Además, promocionamos estas bibliotecas, a través de una celebración anual llamada: "El día Internacional de la Biblioteca Escolar" (International School Library Day), que tiene lugar el primer lunes del mes de Octubre.

Nuestra Misión

  • Creemos con toda certeza, que cada alumno debe de tener acceso libre a una biblioteca escolar eficaz. La SLA, se compromete a apoyar a quien desee trabajar en las bibliotecas escolares, con el fin de fomentar la calidad de la lectura, ofreciendo de esta manera, las mismas oportunidades de aprender para todos.

Contestaremos a todas las solicitudes recibidas, en lengua inglesa, acerca de las bibliotecas escolares en Gran Bretaña.
