Every day we see the importance of ensuring children and young people have access to great books, and a vibrant school library is an essential part of this – so we’re delighted to be part of the Great School Libraries campaign.

Working in partnership with Great School Libraries, our librarians and curriculum specialists have put together two library starter collections, containing books we think make a great foundation for any school library. If you’re looking to start a new library from scratch, or want to refresh your library book stock, the Great School Libraries starter collections will ensure you get the best selection of books for your pupils.

The Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 collection contains 275 fantastic books hand-selected by our librarians for primary pupils. The Key Stage 3 collection contains 250 books suitable for 11-14 year olds.

Containing a mix of fiction and non-fiction, the packs include some of the best and most exciting new children’s and YA publishing, along with classic favourites. We’ve included books we feel are library essentials – enjoyable and exciting reads to grab students’ attention and encourage reading for pleasure.
