  • View recommended reads using Who Next
  • Request books for the school to purchase
  • Check whether a book is available in the school
    library before purchasing!
    For example if you’re in Waterstones or Easons wondering whether you should buy the book you are looking at, first scan the ISBN number from the back of the book to see if the school library has it first! If St. Louis library has it, it will say ‘in library’ or ‘not held’. It’s always worth trying this first, unless you want to buy a copy of the book to keep of course!
