Libraries and reading rooms

Literacy is a vital skill giving joy, knowledge and literary expression to the children that embrace it. Research by the National Literacy Trust on behalf of the School Libraries Commission established a strong statistical relationship between reading attainment and school library use. Moreover, that a high performing school library plays an important role in raising pupils' literacy levels and their access to knowledge.
