School Library Pack

For students in Years 7-9, the free pack includes fifteen titles, split across three categories – Future Classics, Reluctant Readers and Non-Fiction. There are five titles in each category. Five of these titles come with six copies as they are great for reading groups, making a total of 40 books.

There will be accompanying guides for each of the Great for Groups titles to support group reading activities, and a 'Making the most of your School Library Pack' leaflet with tips on how to use the pack to get students reading. The pack is perfect for promoting sociable reading experiences and reading for pleasure.
