Fantastic news is becoming common place...

The Leeds School Library Service received an award in the national "Libraries Change Lives Awards" for its work on developing a library service for children with a visual impairment. Margaret Drinkwater, the School Library Service Manager let me know that the award was presented yesterday at the 'Library and Information Show' by Roger McGough. The team also received a cheque for £2,000, which they are going to use to buy more large print books for the service. I know this fantastic team will continue to have an impact on children in our primary and secondary schools. There are currently 45 children with a visual impairment receiving books and/or tapes/CDs each term.
Well done to Margaret and her talented team!
