The Queensland School Library Association Inc. (QSLA) is committed to advocating for school libraries and emphasising their critical role within education. The work of the library staff goes far beyond just books. Library staff are vital to the development of students as lifelong learners.
Through the objectives of advocacy, communication, professional development and partnerships, QSLA aims to enhance and develop professional knowledge and skills amongst Queensland library staff and advocate the critical role these professionals play within the education sector.
QSLA supports school libraries all across Queensland – providing advocacy, communication and information to our members.
In 2018, we are introducing a ‘Queensland School Library Week’ to focus on the work accomplished by qualified teacher-librarians and library staff in improving literacy and research skills in print and digital formats in ALL school libraries, not only those who are members of QSLA. The 2018 theme ‘School Libraries IN FOCUS’ reflects the aim of this celebratory week.
