Overview — Services to Schools changes

The National Library is transforming the way it supports schools to increase the reach and impact of its services. Our vision is for:

all young people to have access to effective and connected library services and library learning environments that support their development as readers and digitally literate learners."

We are developing, implementing and communicating new services to support this vision over a 3-year period. Service changes will start coming into effect from the beginning of the school year. These services will be introduced as prototypes subject to a further year of testing and shaping with schools and an expert panel.
