In line with the latest advice from the UK Government, Education Library Service is now operating a delivery and collection service.

Our priority remains to provide high quality learning resources to all of our subscribing schools safely and efficiently and following relevant health and safety guidelines. Please continue to request resources via the usual channels, either by phone or using the online request form. Please also refer to the Ordering, Delivery and Collection page for details on how our delivery and collection service will operate.

ELS is currently only open to staff to maintain social distancing however teachers and librarians can arrange to collect assembled projects. Please contact us for more information.

Book bus

  • The book bus will visit your school once a year.  This is your chance to return old and worn out ELS books and choose new and exciting titles. We will email your school to arrange a date that is convenient.
  • The visit lasts for up to two hours and your school can exchange up to 300 books. 
  • Before your visit search through your classroom reading corners or school library and find any ELS books you want to swap. The books that you swap on the book bus are separate from the project loan resources which are issued to you for a term with a receipt. These project resources should be returned with our delivery van by the end of term. Our drivers are in your area every week; you can book a collection online.
