Professional services

Is your library a warm and inviting place that encourages pupils to read for pleasure? If you need a helping hand to achieve this, a member of our team can work with you to enhance your library provision. We offer the following services to schools:

Stock analysis and weeding

If your library stock is looking tired and you need an injection of new books, we can help. We will weed your existing stock, removing titles which are out-of-date and no longer relevant to the curriculum.

Library consultation

Our expert team of librarians and qualified Curriculum Advisors read and review 10,000 newly published children’s and young adult books every year, including both fiction and non-fiction, so are well placed to advise on where you have gaps in your library. After weeding your stock, we can recommend the best new books across all genres to suit your requirements.

We will work in conjunction with you to consider organisation and layout – how would you like to arrange your library so pupils can easily find the books they want on the shelves? Do you have a library management system?

We will also work with you to create a plan moving forwards, to ensure your library is kept up-to-date while getting the most from your budget.


  • School Curriculum Advisor or Reading for Pleasure Advisor at your school @ £600+VAT per day (6 hours) plus expenses
  • A member of our support staff at your school @ £350+VAT per day (6 hours) plus expenses
