Post Primary Schools Service:


This scheme is run by Meath County Council Library Service and targets all post primary and second level schools in Meath County. The main objective is to aid in the development of post primary schools libraries throughout the county.


  • The library service places the orders for all items.
  • The schools benefit from the library discount of 10% – 15%.
  • Items are delivered to the school.
  • Items are ready for the school shelves with a school label and classification numbers if required.
  • Recommended lists on general post primary texts can be requested from a professional Librarian.
  • Training can be given to students involved in their libraries on the roles of school & professional librarians, involving practical aspects of administrating, maintaining and marketing the library service or on research methods. This is an ideal opportunity for students interested in future library work.
  • The school has the opportunity to request advice or suggestions from a professional librarian on layout, design and development of their School library Service.
  • A free reference book is given to all schools involved in the scheme.
