Speak to your school librarian to book. We would prefer one return from each school so please advise your school librarian to email your choices. School librarians should email firstname.lastname@example.org giving your schools 1st, 2nd and 3rd ranking as well as confirming where you would host each session. Each school will be provided with at least one session based on their preferences as far as possible. Sessions should take place in the school library where possible.
