School Library Support

The main objective is to aid in the development of post-primary schools libraries throughout the county. The scheme is open to all post-primary schools in Meath.


  • We order stock for your school library and the school benefits from the library discount of 10% – 15%.
  • Items are delivered to the school shelf-ready with a school label and classification number if required.
  • Recommended reading lists can be requested from a professional librarian.
  • Training is available for students involved in the running of their libraries.  We cover the roles of school & professional librarians, the administration, maintenance and marketing of the library service and basic research skills. This is an ideal opportunity for students interested in future library work.
  • The school can 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.
