School Library Association

In June 2012 Kevin became President of the The School Library Association. The SLA is an independent charity founded in 1937 to support all who work in school libraries and is committed to supporting everyone involved with school libraries, promoting high quality reading and learning opportunities for all. The SLA believes that every pupil is entitled to effective school library provision.

After serving as President of the SLA (2012-2017), Kevin has now agreed to become one of its patrons, alongside Frank Cottrell Boyce, Tim Bowler, Aidan Chambers, Juno Dawson, Sarah McIntyre, Smriti Halls and Professor Julian McDougall.
