Books to Borrow

We have an extensive selection of age-appropriate fiction and non-fiction school books to borrow, and our expert librarians can support you in ensuring that books are selected based on the individual needs of your school and learners. We offer a selection of comprehensive subscriptions to give you access to our broad collection of books to loan as well as other learning resources, and expert support from our professional librarians.

Book Loan Exchange

A long-term loan of high-quality books, which can be swapped twice a year.

Through one of our book loan subscriptions, our exchange system allows your school to refresh your library or book corners by up to two books for every pupil each year, making our books a fantastic, cost-effective, renewable resource.

Contact us today to discuss your requirements and the associated costs.

  • All Education Resources Service exchange books come shelf-ready and serviced, with classification numbers, plastic jackets on paperbacks and fiction-category labels to help you choose age-appropriate titles
  • Exchange books are selected by our team of experienced librarians to reflect the best in current children’s literature, and to match curriculum and reading for pleasure needs
  • Bring a collection of titles onto our Bookbus or into the Resource Centre from the stock we originally provided and swap them for new.
