From the School Library Service
The School Library Service is dedicated to providing a range of resources and advice to schools, nurseries and playgroups in the Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council areas. Nurseries and playgroups may borrow the following resources:
- board books
- topic books
- big books
- picture packs
You are welcome to visit the School Library Service in Shrewsbury or resources can be delivered to your nearest public library.
Shropshire Early Years and Childcare grant funding has been secured to provide a free package of Foundation Stage resources to nurseries and playgroups in the Shropshire Council area. The package offers up to 20 items, issued for a term but exchangeable as often as needed. Telford & Wrekin Council settings are welcome to borrow similar resources, but grant funding is not available from Telford & Wrekin Council to the School Library Service, so there will be a charge for nurseries and playgroups in the Telford area.
From your local library
Libraries in Shropshire provide a wealth of resources for very young children and their parents and carers, and to those providing services through nurseries and playgroups.
Each library has a good selection of books and other material to stimulate reading and learning. Nurseries and playgroups can borrow collections of books free of charge from libraries. Just register with them for a special ticket. Special events and activities are organised such as rhymetimes, storytimes and library visits. Please contact your local library to find out more.
