Annual loans

This service enables schools to access the top quality printed resources available from SLS at a level specific to their resource needs which will enable them to meet the CILIP recommended stock levels of 13 books per pupil.

What does the Annual Loan Service include?

  • Annual Loan per item for 1 year. Full exchange once per year; partial or interim exchanges by arrangement.
  • 1 hour Advisory Visit per annum.
  • Access to free telephone and email advice.

Included in the Annual Loan can be:

  • Guided Reading sets
  • Non-fiction and fiction (including specific authors and genres)
  • Audio Books (including on preloaded MP3 players)
  • Big Books

All loan stock will be initially delivered and collected by SLS.

Individual items from a collection may be exchanged within the loan period by visiting the SLS showroom.

Schools buying the Subscription Package can lease additional Annual Loan items to extend the collection of 2 items per capita they already receive.

"We have just received our new books and I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the selection!  My class have been helping me to sort them out and they can't wait to get their hands on them!
