Helen Smith, Library Resources Manager, Thomas Estley Community College

Thank you to you and all your team for keeping your service going through these difficult times. We, here at St Helens SLS, are really appreciating receiving all the new stock we have ordered so swiftly. It has enabled us, in turn, to keep our service as normal as possible for the schools.

Cato Tempelman, Schools Library Manager, St Helens Schools Library Service

Peters' library reorganisation service has been invaluable in helping us move forward in developing a love of reading across the school. They provided us with such high-quality reading material, as well as removing any outdated books. The children have been so excited with the new books, and the teachers found it helpful to have non-fiction books matched to their topics. I can whole-heartedly recommend using Peters to improve reading standards within a school.
