Inspiring reading and learning by providing high quality books, support & reading events

The Portsmouth School Library Service is an energetic, proactive service that strongly believes that the 'reading mileage' of every pupil has a profound impact on their achievement. We are excited about reading and learning! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   
  • We provide a wide range of carefully selected books, in physical, eBook and eAudio formats.
  • We offer practical staff training, hands-on support and reliable advice.  Because of our extensive experience of school libraries we can save you time and money
  • We provide exciting reader development activities such as the Portsmouth Book Award, Portsmouth Literature Quiz and Meet the Author.

School Libraries have a vital role in helping children and young people develop their skills as readers and learners.  Higher standards of literacy are fostered through having a good school library which actively promotes a love of reading and offers an inspiring place to discover and research. Well-resourced and well used book collections have a strong impact on pupils' motivation to read both for pleasure and to resource the curriculum.

Portsmouth City Council’s School Library Service has a specialist team dedicated to meeting the needs of pupils in all key stages. The School Library Service (SLS) is offered to schools, academies and independent schools from a well-appointed library centre in Paulsgrove.
