Education Library Service: Mobile Library visit to your school

The ELS mobile library is a great way to help promote reading for pleasure in your school. It stocks a wide range of fiction and non-fiction leisure reading for 3 -11 year olds as well as books suited to older readers in Special Schools. The ELS mobile can be booked to visit any Primary, Special School or Day Nursery throughout Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City with visits lasting from 1 hour to a full day. The mobile library is accessible to children and young people with mobility issues as it has a lift.

Benefits of a Mobile Visit:

  • All books borrowed from the mobile are part of a school’s overall loan collection allowance.
  • An ELS mobile visit encourages pupils to engage in reading by choosing their own books from a stock of 2,500 titles.
  • Children and young people who would not normally access libraries in their spare time are able to enjoy a quality library experience for themselves.

The ELS mobile visits are an additional service offered to customers who purchase an allowance of books. All books borrowed from the mobile are therefore part of a school’s overall loan collection.


  • One visit per year: £38/hour, £55/half day, £86/full day
  • Two visits per year: £76/hour, £91/half day, £134/full day
  • Three visits per year: £112/hour, £119/half day, £172/full day
