Our customers say

I've always wanted a Peters library and it doesn't disappoint! The furniture is bright and sturdy and the pupils (and all our visitors) absolutely love our new library space. We love it!

Just wanted to say what a great resource your website is, so useful when trying to select books. From all the information you offer on each book to the immensely usable format, it is always a pleasure to visit! Many thanks - keep it up!

Helen Smith, Library Resources Manager, Thomas Estley Community College

Peters were amazing from the very beginning – they had fantastic ideas during the design process, were incredibly quick to respond to any queries/change requests and were very quick and professional during the installation process. All the children and staff who have seen the new library have been very excited!

Amie Norris, Head Teacher, Viking Primary School

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 They provided us with such high-quality reading material, as well as removing any outdated books.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.
