Every Child a Library Member (ECALM)
The ECALM programme offers a simple, consistent, and nationally branded approach to children’s library membership in Scotland’s public libraries. It will establish simplified joining processes at birth registration, nursery, and primary school enrolment, to ensure that every child in Scotland has access to the valuable learning resources available in public libraries.
Collaboration at its core
The ECALM programme has been developed through an extensive literature review as well as consultation with library staff and key delivery partners across Scotland. Some key documents can be found here.
