School Librarian of the Year Award: Announcement of the 2019 Honour List

The School Librarian of the Year Award is the School Library Association's prestigious honour to recognize the excellent work that is carried out in school libraries every day and highlight the best practice of those whose work is outstanding. Three exciting and innovative librarians have made it onto the Honour List for the SLA School Librarian of the Year Award 2019.

  • Ros Harding - Head Librarian and Archivist at The King's School Chester
  • Chantal Kelleher - Learning Resource Centre Manager at Herne Bay High School
  • Helen Cleaves - Librarian/Learning Resources Manager at Kingston Grammar School

These are three exceptional school librarians; each has made a huge difference to the lives of the students and people they work with, igniting a passion for reading, setting students on a learning journey, teaching them essential skills, as well as supporting staff and reaching out to the wider community. Any one of these three would be a worthy winner of the SLA School Librarian of the Year Award. Full profiles will follow on the SLA website.

Sue Bastone, Chair of the SLA School Librarian of the Year Selection Committee, said: "The Honour List this year are a remarkable set of librarians. They have come through from an extremely strong field and the judges have had very difficult decisions at each stage. These school librarians are leaders in the field and exemplars for the profession."
