Service update

Teachers and other school staff can now make an appointment to come into the library and choose their own books from our shelves. Please contact us by phone or email if you’d like to book an appointment.

Alternatively, we can choose books to order. Our order form is in the Downloads section below. Send us your order by email, or give us a ring to discuss it. Please contact us to arrange a date to collect your new boxes of books, and return your old ones.

Our opening hours have changed slightly since the start of the Coronavirus outbreak, but we are still open every day, Monday to Friday. Please contact us to check our current opening hours. We are still open during all school holidays, except Christmas.

Salford Schools’ Library Service lends project loans and many other children’s book resources to teachers.

Most schools in Salford subscribe to our service – contact us to find out what you can borrow. We can also arrange to lend books to schools outside Salford. Contact us for further details.

As well as lending books, we provide the following services to subscribing schools:

  • Advice on developing your school library
  • Telephone helpline during opening hours
  • Email bulletins
  • For secondary schools – networking meetings for the librarian or teacher in charge of the school library
  • For secondary schools – participation in the Salford Children’s Book Award

You can download our latest resources list below.  The resources list gives details of our collections of class readers, mini class readers, guided readers, big books and author boxes.

“Excellent selection of books, an extremely useful resource– all well used for sharing, as resources and by individual children.  Thank you.”
