Literacy, Books and Reading Team for Schools (LBRTS)

The Literacy, Books and Reading Team for Schools (LBRTS) (formerly the Schools Library Service, or SLS) loans books and other resources and provides advice, support and training to schools to help them to promote reading and develop their own libraries.

We offer services to all schools in Suffolk, across all phases and types of school.
