Little English School Libraries

Since 2016 there are 14 primary schools in the Netherlands who have joined the project and established their own Little English School Libraries & reading corners.  These schools have received advice and books throughout the year and a starter pack with materials provided by EP-Nuffic, British Council NL and publishers such as Usborne, Oxford University Press and Penguin. https://vimeo.com/171322148

In addition, there are around 30 school who participated in Books in a Box (June 2015)  and made a start at creating their English reading corners in their school libraries and classrooms.

Setting up a library takes time but have a look at some photos from participating schools and see what they have achieved:

And here you can see some photos from our first Little English School Library at the Montessori + Breda. This library was a finalist in the SLA Inspiration Awards 2015. It is home to over 2000 English children´s books. In September 2017, we opened up a second open-access Little English School Library at the Montessori+ in Prinsenbeek.
