The Schools Library Service run by Essex County Council provides a cost effective way of targeted support for learning in the classroom and advice on schools’ own library provision. Schools buying this service can exchange books and other materials on a regular basis.
The Public Library Service runs a summer reading scheme in all libraries, maintaining an interest in reading and learning throughout the summer.
Visits to libraries by classes are welcome and schools can tailor these to support any area of the curriculum they choose.
The Public Library Service supports individual learning for students through a network of seven libraries and a number of electronic resources available to those holding a library ticket. Tickets can be obtained from the day of birth of a child.
Bookstart is run by the Library Service and introduces children to books, reading and learning from 8 months old until they join school. Linked to work with parents - it significantly increases achievement at school.
