School Library Design Award 2012 finalists announced

This is the second year of the Award that aims to highlight the innovation, commitment, flair and foresight found in school libraries across the country.

25 June 2012

Supported by the School Library Association and sponsored by Demco Interiors, the Award was created to set future standards for excellence in school library design.

Finalists in the SLA School Library Design Award 2012, are:

  • Cheltenham College
  • The Duston School, Northampton
  • Front Lawn Junior School, Havant

The finalists were selected by a panel who judged all entries across a set of criteria: inviting/improved library image; space planning; educational objectives; technology and engagement; consultation.

The judges were impressed by the quality of the entries commenting: “This year has really changed my way of thinking about library design” and, “Flexibility has been the key in many of the designs seen.”

The winner will be announced at the School Libraries Celebration Day to be held at a central London venue in October. Prizes to the winning school and runners up will be donated by Demco.

Tricia Adams, Director, SLA said: "It is fantastic to see such a range of innovation and creativity in making learning environments that stimulate students to work and read."
