Book Jacketing and Library Servicing

With over 25 years’ experience supplying books to school libraries, we are here to help with any of your book jacketing and library servicing needs. The benefits of library servicing are three-fold (excuse the pun):

  1. Saving you time as your books are shelf-ready upon delivery
  2. Saving you money in the long term as the shelf-life of your collection improves dramatically
  3. Improving your cataloguing and bibliographic data for your users

Servicing that’s shelf-ready

Whether you need your entire order fitted with protective jackets or something more custom for your library, we are happy to fulfill your requirements to your specifications. You’ll receive your order shelf-ready right out of the box. If the service you need is not listed below, or you would like further information about our school library services, please phone or email us with your requirements and queries.
