As part of the project's ongoing effort to reach out and impact school libraries, a School Libraries and Design Roundtable (the second in a series of three) was held on 22 September 2017 in partnership with the National Institute of Education (NIE)'s Office of Educational Research, hosted by the National Library Board at the Bishan Public Library.
Ministry officials, school leaders, library administrators and educators attended the talk and spent a fruitful afternoon discussing the role of the school library in tackling reading and poverty in students.
The keynote speakers at the event were Dr Loh Chin Ee from NIE, Mr Charles Peters, Ms Raihana Hussain from the National Library Board and Dr Sue Nicols from the University of Southern Australia.
