The ELS mobile library is a great way to help promote reading for pleasure in your school. It stocks a wide range of fiction and non-fiction leisure reading for 3-11 year olds. It also contains books suited to older readers in Special Schools.
Visits can last from 1 hour to a full day.
The mobile library is accessible to children and young people with mobility issues as it has a lift.
All books borrowed from the mobile are part of a school’s overall loan collection allowance.
Benefits of a Mobile Visit
An ELS mobile visit encourages pupils to engage in reading by choosing their own books from a stock of 2,500 titles.
Children and young people who would not normally access libraries in their spare time are able to enjoy a quality library experience for themselves.
“Children who love reading will read more and, over time, choose literature which is more demanding and suitably stretching.” Reading: the next steps, DfE, March 2015
