Scottish Book Trust

From Heather Collins, Children’s Programme Coordinator, Scottish Book Trust

Dear Librarians,

I’m hoping you can help me!

I am looking for secondary school book groups and library volunteers to write blog entries for the Teens & Young People blog. We want to showcase all the brilliant school libraries around the country and shout about the fantastic work school libraries do to enthuse their young readers.

Do you have any pupils at school who may be interested in writing the following type of blog entry for us? If so please share the following information with them:

Book groups

We’re interested to know what your book group have been reading recently, which books have been huge hits and which haven’t.

You may also want to include how your book group formed, who is involved, why you take part.

Library Volunteers

We’d like to use the blog to profile young school library volunteers around the country.

·         Why do you volunteer in the library?
·         What’s your favourite thing about volunteering in the library?
·         What makes your library a brilliant place to be?
·         What do you like to read? What have you most enjoyed recently?

How to submit your blog

Blog entries should be a maximum of 500 words and should be emailed to either in the body of the email or as a Word attachment. We would love to receive the blogs before the end of term.

I hope you’ll have some interested pupils and look forward to receiving their blog entries.

Best wishes,

Heather Collins
