School Library Magazine

School librarians and teachers across Glasgow have been working with pupil magazine clubs and journalists Laura Kelly, Fiona Gibson and Dan Freedman to create Yaldi! 

Yaldi! is a magazine for secondary pupils to explore their writing talent, inform their audience and promote reading and writing for pleasure. 

Issue 1, featuring book reviews, short stories, author interviews and more creative writing material,  is available now in both your local library and school libraries.

Keep an eye out for the sports-themed Issue 2 which will be published in August 2012.
