Welcome to SWSSLN
We have recently re-branded and are now the South Western Sydney School Library Network.The SWSSLN's vision is to design strategic and innovative professional learning to enhance practices, programs, and spaces to support future ready learners.
This is the professional learning hub for Teacher Librarians and Library School Administrative Officers in the SW Sydney region.We are one of only a handful of school library networks in NSW who design professional learning for all school library staff. All are welcome.
This site provides information on upcoming Professional Learning Conferences and links to useful resources for the school library community.
