Building Better Readers is a comprehensive reading initiative by North Ayrshire Libraries Education Resource Service supported by the School Library Improvement Fund (SLIF).

The project aims to inspire a reading culture across all primary and Additional Support Needs (ASN) school libraries while strengthening links with secondary schools and public libraries in North Ayrshire.

Building a Reading Culture

As part of the project a Building Better Readers Toolkit was created to support staff looking to build a reading culture in their school. It contains tools to help audit the current culture; practical advice on developing paired reading schemes and book groups; and resources to enable libraries and reading areas to be enhanced.

This whole school approach can help librarians, school staff, readers, and volunteers to support reading in a fun and imaginative way.
