Welcome to School Library Services

The Schools Library and Resource Service provide support to nurseries, schools and colleges on all aspects of learning resource and library provision. We use our expert resource and curriculum knowledge to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom by providing flexible loan packages offering a range of artefacts, printed and multi-media resources. We provide professional advice on creating, improving and maintaining an effective school library to support teaching and learning and the promotion of reading for pleasure throughout the school.

We also offer a range of other services to promote reading in school. These include an e-book library lending platform, discounted comic/magazine subscriptions, and the annual Coventry Inspiration Book Awards, and Primary Library Quiz.  Our training courses are designed to support school staff in running effective school libraries, reading promotion and the use of Library Management Systems. We provide regular updates on new books and resources and access to extensive stock knowledge to find the right resource on almost any topic. Customer schools also get additional benefits including discounts on training and exclusive invitations to author and book promotion events.
