Inspire and motivate your students with a range of stimulating materials, selected to ensure your subject comes alive, in the classroom or library. Selected by CLS librarians to meet your individual needs and the ability levels of your pupils, our topic boxes contain 30 items, which may include fiction, non-fiction, artefacts, or DVDs, on a 12 week loan, exchangeable by you within that time.
Sets of up to 8 copies of the same title can be included. Choose up to 5 different topics per collection. Just tell us what you want and sit back and relax. Or come and select yourself. Delivery and collection from school included.
Loans are for up to one term. We will normally deliver and collect within the first and last two weeks of the term. If you require a collection that spans two terms it can be loaned to you for a maximum of 12 weeks, delivered in the week of your choice.
Just go to the ‘Project requests’ tab on our website to order your topic boxes.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for putting together a fabulous set of books and including a project box, as well as the Little Manfred reading group set of books of course. The children have used the artefacts on 2 afternoons already. I was able to organise a carousel of activities and also research groups via your books and our school laptops; the class have thoroughly enjoyed the BBC film clips DVD so far - a real step back in time. You've put together a great set of resources which have thoroughly enriched our topic."
