School Library Pack

School Library Pack

In 2014 we are once again offering every secondary school in England the free School Library Pack!

 

This free pack of books and resources supports staff to create a reading culture that reaches all students, encouraging students to discuss what they are reading and join in activities such as reading groups.


School Library Pack is available free of charge to any school or education provider in England with Year 7 students. The programme is funded by the Department for Education, and generously supported by children’s book publishers.



In 2013/14 more than 4,500 schools received the pack. One school that received the pack said:


‘It's such an excellent idea and focuses the LRC staff on activities to complement what many of us are already trying to achieve in raising the profile of reading for pleasure and all the benefits that that entails for the individual. The books help us to create a reading culture within college. Thank you.’

  • The Terrible Thing that Happened to Barnaby Brocket by John Boyne
