Support for schools

Pupil choosing a book

Salford Community Libraries works closely with teachers to encourage all children to join their local library and discover the fantastic free lifelong resource on their doorstep.  We offer a range of class visits tailored to your needs.

Salford Schools' Library Service is a dedicated resource for teachers and lends materials to support the curriculum, as well as offering practical advice on developing your own school library.  We also run the annual Salford Children’s Book Award for 11 to 14 year olds in Salford schools.


The children are always really enthusiastic when we visit the library. The staff are friendly and are always willing to help.
