Enhancing learning with the right library facilities

From state, independent and international schools to school groups, academies, 6th form colleges and Multi-Academy Trusts, our leading library management system, with its engaging online reading community, offers the most flexible solutions. These solutions are designed to encourage reading for enjoyment, independent learning, to drive parental engagement, support coursework and meet curriculum objectives, 24/7 on any device.

With Reading Cloud you have all the features and functionality you’d expect from a leading library management system as well as an innovative online student engagement community which supports you in promoting reading for pleasure and in actually getting students to engage with the library. 

“Some of the most reluctant readers are now engaged and I arrived at school the other morning to find one of our boys reading a book while he waited for the building to open! We would thoroughly recommend the system to any school, money well spent!” Saint Charles primary school, Glasgow

What makes Reading Cloud different

No two school libraries are the same. So whether you’re looking for a straightforward system to issue books and monitor what children are borrowing, or you’re looking for a platform to support you in promoting reading for pleasure, with the library as an essential resource for the whole school community, there’s a Reading Cloud package for you.
