Our Literacy Library

Our Literacy Library is now finished!  We are delighted with our Literacy Library at the heart of our beautiful building in London which creates a permanent home for our 23,000 children’s books and also a space which can be used not just by the 2,000 teachers who work with us at CLPE annually but which can also by literacy charities and literature organisations who currently don’t have access to an event, library or a training space.

We are so grateful for the amazing support from the world of children's books, literacy, primary teaching and many others to enable us to complete our vision

Supporters have their names permanently displayed in our new library displaying their commitment to supporting children’s literacy if they bought a shelf, book case or an alcove.  

We hope you’ll be able to visit soon but, if you can’t, you can have a preview by watching our video below, which is narrated by Joseph Coelho using his poem There are Things That Lurk in a Library, from Overheard in a Tower Block, published by Otter Barry Books.
