Different resources

Our active stock management programme enables us to maintain high quality collections which are available for loan. Our current stock is approximately 250,000 items with over 35,000 different titles. 60% of our stock is on loan at any one time, which still leaves quite a lot to choose from!

Every year we add over 20,000 items to stock so there is always something new to look out for.  All of our resources are available for topic box loans or for your school library.

We have seveal specialist collections that include:

  • Dual language early years
  • Reluctant readers
  • Professional reading
  • AV resources
  • Specialist large print (CustomEye)
  • Art loan
  • Artefact boxes

What can you borrow?

The number of resources which can be borrowed and exchanged is determined by the individual Service Agreement taken out by your school or organisation. General fiction and non fiction is issued to your school, other items are issued on named staff membership cards for the school.

We pride ourselves on the flexibility of our service. You can select individual items yourself via our online catalogue, send in requests using our online request forms or email us directly.  Topic forms are returned for whole class resource boxes, these are then delivered through our van service termly. 

Receiving Your Resources

We will send your items to you via:

  • County Council Courier Service, for small packages, if your organisation buys into that service.
  • SLS delivery service at the beginning of each term for blue topic boxes.

Alternatively we can make arrangements with individuals for collecting resources from Cleaswell Hill if neither of the above options are suitable.
