About Peters

Peters is the UK's leading specialist supplier of children's books and furniture to schools, academies, public libraries and multi-academy trusts, and we're passionate about inspiring children and young people to read. 

We believe all young people should have access to great books, and inspiring spaces to enjoy them in. Reading for pleasure is one of the biggest indicators of pupils' overall wellbeing and attainment, but we know that every child and young person is different, so we can advise on everything from the latest fiction and non-fiction to phonics and reading schemes to suit your requirements.

Our librarians and curriculum specialists read and review more than 10,000 newly published children's and young adult books every year, so are ideally placed to help and advise on your reading requirements. We work with public libraries, primary and secondary schools to supply books and furniture and to promote reading in a variety of ways:

  • Thousands of fiction, non-fiction and educational books available to browse and buy online
  • Showroom in central Birmingham with around 40,000 children's and young adult titles in stock
  • Bespoke book selections by our expert team of librarians and curriculum specialists
  • Hand-picked book packs to save you time and make the most of your budget
  • Free library design service to help you create inspiring and relaxing spaces for your students
  • School library audits to review your book stock and make recommendations, or help you create a new book collection from scratch
  • Optional book jacketing and labelling service so you can receive your books shelf-ready

Our team will work in partnership with you every step of the way to ensure you get the best books at competitive prices. We work closely with schools, academies and multi-academy trusts to help make the most of your budget.
