Services to Special Schools

Mobile Library Service

Every Special school is visited twice a year by a mobile library stocked with a wide range of materials carefully selected to support the curriculum and reflect pupils’ leisure and reading interests. The mobile visit is the perfect opportunity for teachers to add fresh and stimulating resources to their class libraries. Teachers may request materials in advance or during the visit and exchange information with the mobile staff. Each mobile is fitted with a tail gate lift to provide easy access for all.

Project and Request Service

At any time teachers can telephone, e-mail or post requests for individual books or topics to Library Headquarters. These will be delivered or posted to the school within two weeks if the material is on the shelves.

Advisory and Support Service

ELS staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about children’s literature and have a wide knowledge of the curriculum. They are available to talk to staff, pupils and parents’ groups. Library booklists can help teachers stay up to date with children’s books.

Librarians can advise schools on planning, organising and running a library. Training sessions can be run for teachers or pupils.

Schools can also buy resources from the library service from their own funds. Materials are supplied fully serviced for integration into the library and a discount is available.
