About the Education Library Service

The Education Library Service (ELS) has about 50,000 fiction, non-fiction, poetry and picture books. We provide bulk book loans to schools, as well as advice and promotion services.

Our service is very flexible. Schools can borrow any combination of tailor-made resource packs and/or bulk reading loans.

We also offer a range of promotion and advisory services to schools. We can tailor these to whatever suits you. They can include

  • advice on your school library
  • training for volunteer helpers
  • advice on author visits
  • motivational book-talks
  • library skills sessions
  • supporting book week events.

Eperienced library assistants manage the ELS book resources. Librarians from the Children and Young People’s team deliver the advice and promotion activities.

If you would like more information please contact us.
