Conclusion

The project has been successful and well received by the children, schools and authors involved in it. The ripple effect will continue as the schools build on the visit in the future and encourage their students to read more for pleasure. The results demonstrate that a small amount of funding can make a big difference to each individual school, particularly when used by a creative thinking and pro-active school librarian. There is a huge need for this type of project to be replicated not only in London but across the UK. All the schools hoped that the project would be repeated to enable more schools to have the opportunity that they have had.
