School Library Pack

The School Library Pack is a reading for pleasure programme which is available free to any secondary school or education provider in England with Year 7 students.   

Containing over 40 free books, the pack can not only boost your library resources but also encourage students to try different types of books they might not usually consider reading.

What's included?

Your pack includes more than 40 books from a range of genres and supporting resources that aim to help staff create a reading culture that reaches all students. The pack encourages students to talk about reading and join in activities such as reading groups. School Library Pack titles include sets of: Future classics, Reluctant Readers and Short Story Collections.

Registration for School Library Pack 2017-18 will be opening in September.
