We believe that reading for pleasure and school libraries are fundamental when it comes to literacy, student attainment and student wellbeing and we’ve been on a mission to help schools promote reading for pleasure for over 30 years now!
We are proud to be supporting Waterstone's Children's Laureate, Cressida Cowell's Life Changing Libraries project with BookTrust with our Reading Cloud library management systems!
"Over the course of a year, six primary schools across England – all of which have at least 25% of pupils eligible for free school meals – will be helped to develop a reading for pleasure culture, with the support of BookTrust and Cressida." BookTrust.
There will be lots of helpful information, case studies and blogs to help all schools with reading for pleasure throughout the project as well.
Today we’re proud to be the library management system provider of choice for over 7000 schools, with a whopping 4.5 million active borrowers on our systems and over 55 million books currently catalogued!
We provide systems and tools with all the features and functionality you need for the day to day running of your library as well as an online student engagement community and a new innovative literacy tool to ensure your students develop long lasting positive attitudes to reading.
