#12 Clubs


Clubs are a great way to publicise the library’s facilities, get the space busy and have fun at the same time!

The beauty of clubs is that there is such a wide variety of interest groups that can be tapped, there are bound to be a range of activities that will interest pupils and the librarian. It is preferable to have an interest in the activity you are promoting, as this enthusiasm is often transmitted to the pupils by default.

There will always be an interest in the more traditional type of library clubs such as chess, writing, games, reading, quiz competitions, but you can often create interest with more unusual clubs such as digital photography, craft clubs, eco clubs, internet clubs, web design and so on.

Club content and structure very much depends on your own interests, and how you decide it should be run. Club activities should always be well planned for in advance, in an allocated and exclusive space, and with a known list of participants.

Funding can often be raised from general school funds, or from curriculum related budgets for ‘curriculum support’ activities.
