Schools library service

Leeds Schools Library Service (SLS) provides the best available resources direct to Leeds schools to underpin the curriculum, and inspire reading for pleasure in pupils and staff, raising attainment throughout the school.
For information on our services please see the brochure, 'Unlock your library', from the Documents section, together with our Order Pack and Forms for the Academic year 2014 to 2015.

Reading for pleasure

The Leeds Book Awards is a successful city wide initiative, run jointly between Leeds School Library Service and Leeds Public Libraries. The Awards provide a fantastic opportunity for schools and pupils to take part and vote for the best children’s and young people’s books published in 2014 in 9-11, 11-14 and 14-16 categories. For more information see www.leedsbookawards.co.uk or download the shortlists from our Documents section.
We at School Library Service are passionate about supporting schools with the "reading for pleasure" agenda. There are a number of ways we can help you foster a love of reading with your pupils including author visits (real or virtual - see the virtual authors website), arranging a Patron of Reading (www.patronofreading.co.uk) and tying into national reading initiatives.
