A Letter from Your New Chair


My name is Nicola Bell and I have been invited to become the new chair of the North East Branch of the SLA.

I am the School Librarian at Berwick Academy (formally Berwick High School) and this is my eighth academic year here. My job just keeps getting better and better and that is thanks in no small part to the support I have had over the years from the SLA and other School Librarians.

What I would like to do, together with Eileen Armstrong, Julia Carville and a core group of librarians, is inspire and motivate other librarians through meetings, training days and events.

We hope to relaunch the branch in the spring of next year, probably at Seven Stories and hope you can come along to join us.

I can be contacted at anytime during school hours on 01289 305083 ext 254 or by email:Nicola.Bell[at]northumberland.gov.uk.  Please do get in touch with any views, opinions or requests. I would love to hear from you.

Best wishes

Nicola Bell
