Reading for pleasure

We at School Library Service are passionate about supporting schools with the "reading for pleasure" agenda. There are a number of ways we can help you foster a love of reading with your pupils including author visits (real or virtual - see the virtual authors website), arranging a Patron of Reading (www.patronofreading.co.uk) and tying into national reading initiatives.
