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!

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.

Feature-rich

Reading Cloud leads the way when it comes to features and functionality and our ongoing commitment to development means that we keep up with the evolving needs of schools.

Uncomplicated

Our system is cloud-based, set up is quick and easy and Reading Cloud integrates seamlessly with Accelerated Reader and with management information systems to save you time.

Flexible

We offer three different packages with simple straightforward pricing options so there’s a library management system to suit your needs and budget.

Intelligent

Reading Cloud provides a huge amount of information in a wide variety of report types to inform decision-making and interventions (eg, school inspection reports, most borrowed titles, key reading trends).

Intuitive and engaging

We designed our student interface to be appealing and engaging for today’s students and accessible on any device.

Independent learning

Reading Cloud really supports independent learning with tools such as suggested books, chat functionality and the ability to write or record book reviews.
