Library loan and exchange
Secondary or primary schools that subscribe for three years can get long term loans and exchanges from us.
These long term loans supplement your school library collection and can be exchanged in part or whole annually over a three year period.
You can get:
- 750 books for up to three years (secondary schools)
- 500 books for up to three years (primary schools)
- fiction and non-fiction
Delivery and collection
Loans are delivered directly to your school in a strong blue storage box. We provide a checklist for you to make sure the contents are correct. Please use this and let us know as soon as possible if there is a problem or you have a question.
It is your responsibility to locate and check off loans against their printout at the end of term.
Losses and overdue charges
Unless specifically renewed, all loans are to be returned at the end of every term. A loss factor is allocated for each loan. Two reminders are sent to individual teachers and losses are invoiced every two terms in arrears to allow teachers time to search thoroughly. All videos and CD-ROMs will be charged for, as will any item missing from a story sack.
Leaflets, posters and documents
You can use these to help promote reading and libraries in your school. There are also resources to help you organise your collection or hold classroom sessions. Please contact us for further information.
