The Schools Library Service

Class Sets

The Schools Library Service visits National Schools in County Louth three times annually. In addition the schools service provides class sets of novels to individual teachers on a request basis. Please see below for a list of the current titles available to different classes. It should be noted that:

  • The policy for class sets is that only one set can be issued to a teacher at any one time
  • The sets are issued for a 12-week period only. This ensures that we can fulfil requests in a reasonable time-frame
  • The number of copies of each set varies and are subject to availability
