The story is inside” is a product designed for children and adults that puts children’s story in the spotlight, and based on the story creates a series of suggestions and ideas for interactive play. The story was written as a problem story and, as such, deals with some of the challenges that parents face every day in raising theor children.

 Portuguese School Libraries Network
Main goals: The School Libraries Network Program (SLNP) was launched in 1996 by the Ministries of Education and Culture, aiming to install and develop libraries in public schools at all levels of education, providing users with the necessary resources for reading, access, use and production of information in all formats and media. Teacher librarians are responsible for the operation and management of school libraries, curriculum-based activities, reading and literacy development. They manage libraries in order to make them spaces of knowledge and variety of resources, implicated in the change of educational practices, in the development of digital, media and information literacy, in the training of critical readers and in the construction of citizenship. Coordinated by the School Libraries Network Agency, the program articulates its action with other services of the Ministry of Education, municipalities, municipal libraries, universities, training centers, foundations and national and international associations. The connection between the SLNP Agency, schools and the different local partnerships is responsibility of regional coordinators that supervise and organize a number of schools. These coordinators also give technical and pedagogical support to teacher librarians and library teams.
Actions or Activities: In 2017, the Portuguese School Libraries Network Agency published the second edition of the reference document "Learning with the School Library", a set of learning standards associated with reading, information, digital and media competencies that school libraries are expected to promote. The experiment in using the standards "Learning with the School Library" was initiated in 2013 with a small group of basic schools. Now, the learning standards are extended to the secondary schools and they can be used as a guideline and operationalized by all the school libraries integrated into the Portuguese School Libraries Network (about 2500 school libraries). Considering that the majority school libraries have already left behind the installation and organization phase, the School Libraries Network Office launches annually a series of initiatives, some in partnership with other institutions - projects, competitions, applications - aimed at supporting innovative projects of school communities and to promote different literacies, citizenship and inclusion.
