School Library Service

Loans

The School Library Service has a unique range of resources to cover the age group from four to sixteen. Resources are professionally selected to support the learning needs of your pupils and to provide both information and inspiration. Your Service Level Agreement provides details of the number of resources your school is entitled to borrow from us.

Exchanges

  • Primary schools are entitled to at least two exchanges a year, either by mobile or at the most convenient SLS centre
  • Secondary schools are entitled to at least two exchanges a year at the most convenient SLS centre
  • All schools can exchange 400 resources annually to update their stock

If preferred, and in consultation with the school, SLS staff can select and arrange delivery of resources and take away material no longer required. This exchange option is known as the Assisted Selection facility.

Additional leasing

If you want to make your book budget stretch further, you can lease additional resources from the SLS to supplement your usual loan entitlement.

  • Lease any number of additional items @£3.25 per item and exchange within your standard allocation.

This represents great value for money, as an average book price is now approximately £9, and allows greater flexibility to support topic work within the school. For further details, contact your Lead Adviser.
