Is your library a warm and inviting place that encourages pupils to read for pleasure? If you need a helping hand to achieve this, a member of our team can work with you to enhance your library provision. We offer the following services to schools:
If your book stock is looking tired and you need an injection of new titles, we can help. Our librarians and curriculum specialists read and review more than 1000 new children's and young adult books every month, so are well placed to weed your existing fiction and non-fiction, advise where there are gaps and help you make the best of your budget.
Can your pupils find the books they want on the shelves? Are your books labelled and jacketed? Our team can help with a range of projects, from non-fiction classification (Dewey decimal or colour coding), book levelling/banding and identifying books for the Renaissance Accelerated Reader™ programme to data integration and labelling.
Renaissance Accelerated Reader™ uplift service
If you're looking to adopt Renaissance Accelerated Reader™ in your school, save time with our unique uplift service. The uplift service is an easy, hassle-free way solution for implementing Accelerated Reader (AR). We will take your existing library and classroom stock, apply jackets and AR labels to all titles that have been quizzed, returning them within 10 working days.

"Peters' library reorganisation service has been invaluable in helping us move forward in developing a love of reading across the school. They have provided us with such high-quality reading material, as well as removing any outdated books. The children have been so excited with the new books, and the teachers found it helpful to have non-fiction books matched to their topics. I can wholeheartedly recommend using Peters to improve reading standards within a school."
