Library Advisory Service

West Grove after 4

All School Library Services (SLS) differ but here are some of the ways we can help:

  • Setting up a whole library or a book corner
    Whether you’re setting up a library for the first time or  moving one within the school, ask advice on shelving,  furnishing, stock and staff.
  • Buying the right books
    Advice on the most suitable books currently available, ensuring you always have up-to-date and high quality stock. Some SLSs offer a book ordering service with   competitive discount
  • Pre and post OFSTED support
    Experienced SLS staff could evaluate your library and create a library development plan for you.
  • Advice on Library IT systems
    Help to choose the best IT system for your library and offer guidance and practical help with its implementation.
  • Staff Training
    Maintain best use of your library by ensuring staff are fully trained. Some SLSs can provide you with a professional librarian on a regular basis.
