Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch our Virtual School Library to help keep children reading during lockdown.

Every week, a popular children's author will become our ‘Author of the Week’ and provide a free book or audiobook and exclusive videos and activities aimed at primary school children, all available at library.thenational.academy.

Having access to a school library is really important. They nurture a love of reading that can enrich children’s literacy skills, academic achievements and mental wellbeing. The Virtual School Library will ensure children have access to the magical world of stories at a time when many are learning from home.

Along with the National Literacy Trust we’re working with brilliant publishers and inspiring authors to ensure that the materials in our Virtual School Library support children’s wellbeing through reading.
