SLASA is the ‘Voice for School Libraries’ in SA. We promote the importance of school libraries and the impact that qualified staff have on students and teachers. We support campaign projects and activities that help members to advocate for school libraries.

SLASA partners with Student Need School Libraries and has committee members with leading roles in the National campaign which informs and engages with parents about school libraries and sparking them into action to advocate at their child’s school.

A range of resources to support people with school library advocacy can be found at the website:
