How to Subscribe

Secondary schools across all authorities, sign up to the service through a Service Level Agreement which is sent out to all schools in January and runs from April to March each year.

Cheshire Schools' Book Award 2018

We had a an exciting week at ELS last week as we launched the 2018 Cheshire Schools' Book Award. We were joined by author of the Guggenheim Mystery and Murder most unladylike mystery series Robin Stevens, who gave a really interesting talk on what inspired her to write mystery and answered questions from a very enthusiastic audience. We were thrilled that almost 100 pupils and their teachers form secondary schools in the area were able to come as we unveiled the shortlist. If you would like to find more, please contact Ann Cowsill or Helen Page at the Education Library Service on 01606 275801.
