Thanks to Simple Little Library system, our pupils have completely re-engaged with the library and a love of books. The children can search for the titles they want to read online and our library monitors will sign out the title and deliver it to their class. Staff using SLLS, can see which titles the children are reading, track who is regularly reading and those who might need some support in finding a genre or author to ignite their passion. Teachers can use the reports to track reading trends in the class, meaning we can prove our pupils have a love of reading and are accessing texts at the appropriate level to them. SLLS is simple to use but highly effective. We would highly recommend SLLS to anyone.
