Library Services for Education is closed at the moment

Although Library Services for Education is closed at the moment, we will soon be in touch with news of how we can support schools and home educators as lockdown restrictions ease.

Topic Box Loans

Topic boxes

LSE holds a range of resources which are designed to help teachers and school librarians make reading and learning fun for children.

We offer the following to support your teaching and your pupils' learning:

  • Fiction and non-fiction books
  • Reading sets
  • A range of other formats including: DVDs, audio books, photo packs and a small collection of artefacts and puppets

Topic Boxes

Project boxes are loaned on a pay-as-you-go basis.  The boxes are loaned for an old school term and are delivered to and collected from the school.  There are 2 options to choose from:

  • New ‘Off-the-shelf’ Topic Box
