Choose one of the three options below that best suits your needs
A box of 30 books and other resources
Tell us the topics you need resources for, and the age group you want to use them with and we will deliver to your school a box of 30 relevant books (fiction and non-fiction), posters, artefacts (where appropriate), picture packs and more, and collect them again at the end of term. You can give us just one topic or list several, or ask for a selection of fiction on a particular theme or genre to promote reading for pleasure, enhance learning or develop reading skills.

One-hour advisory visit to your school
If you are looking for ideas to develop your school library, an experienced library advisor can come to your school to meet with you, assess your current provision and make recommendations for future actions. This could be to discuss installing a library management system, re-designing or re-locating your school library, work through ideas for getting the library better used by children or anything else on your mind.
£70 (+ travel)
