While the School Library Association is located in the UK, many of its members reside all over Europe and in other parts of the world. Anyone who is committed to developing school libraries can join the SLA. Materials provided by the SLA are published in English.

SLA members are offered counselling, training, publications and the magazine “The School Librarian“. The SLA is represented in England, Wales and Scotland. SLA is concerned with developing and supporting school libraries and school librarians. In 2004, the “SLA School Librarian of the Year Award“ was initiated in order to point towards the high quality of school libraries. The International Day of School Libraries,, held on the first Monday in October, also highlights the work of school libraries.

The SLA is guided by the idea that each pupil should have access to effective school library provisions. The SLA supports anyone engaged in supporting school libraries, thus fostering the learning and reading opportunities of all pupils.
