Resources per class

Each teacher should complete a form requesting resources for their class.  For details of all the resources available to borrow, please contact us on 020 8359 3931 to speak to a member of staff, or email SLRS@barnet.gov.uk

How to subscribe

The service is available to all schools on a subscription basis. Subscriptions are for one financial year at a time and are based on pupil numbers.  

If you are joining the service for the first time, please contact the service for advice.

Membership is separate from the public library service and you should register using your current school’s address and contact details.

A librarian can provide professional advice and support for schools on the development of their own library resource centres and help schools to select books for their libraries.
