In 2016 the Scottish Library and Information Council commissioned a Review of the Every Child A Library Member Pilot.
A total of 24 public library services throughout Scotland took part in the pilot scheme to introduce automatic library membership at key stages throughout the early years of a child's life. The pilot was funded through the Public Library Improvement Fund.
The review was carried out by professor Peter Reid and Ms Caroline Hood of the Department of Information Management at Robert Gordon University. It includes an overview of the pilot, findings, and recommendations.
