Following the advice of the UK Government, Education Library Service is now closed and all deliveries and collections will cease until further notice. There will be staff working remotely who will be able pick up emails and enquiries from schools. If you need to get in touch please email educationlibraryservice@cheshiresharedservices.gov.uk and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Please check out the Resources and Useful Links page for information to support parents whose children are at home. You can also follow us on Twitter @CheshireELS and Facebook for more ideas and useful information.

Keep an eye on our latest news for further updates. We hope to resume a full service as soon as possible.

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.
