It’s been absolutely fantastic all the emails and messages I have been getting today from fellow librarians and other friends in the book world. I’ve known for a while about being on the School Library Associations Honour List for School Librarian of the Year but it’s been really difficult not to say anything!
It is a fantastic organisation whom I have had the pleasure of working with in the past, talking at conferences and writing things for and their award is such an important one to us as librarians. It puts us in the spot light and shows that the work we do has an impact in schools. It shows that we are not just there as a title, a box ticked, but that we are a fundamental part of the school community.
It’s even more fantastic then to be nominated for and to make it to the Honours list itself. Something that I am very proud of!
