Services to Schools

The Welsh Books Council offers an excellent opportunity for teachers and librarians to keep up-to-date with the latest Welsh-language and Welsh-interest books and resources to support the National Curriculum.

What services do we offer?


Field Officers

Three officers visit primary and secondary schools throughout Wales in order to exhibit books and educational resources and to collect orders. These exhibitions provide teachers with an excellent opportunity to browse through the books as well as receiving advice and help from experienced officers.

It is also possible to search for information on all the books available on the Welsh Books Council's website www.gwales.com on the officers' laptops. Orders are taken by computer and are processed through the school's choice of local bookshop.

Officers also visit libraries, and arrange exhibitions at conferences and courses.

In order to arrange a visit please contact Eirlys Parry, Secretary, Children's Books and Reading Promotions Department:

Information Packs

Every term, a comprehensive information pack is sent to all schools in Wales – each pack contains colourful posters, information leaflets on books, and Meet the Author leaflets which give useful and interesting information on authors who write in Welsh, or in English about Wales, as well as leaflets from publishers giving information about forthcoming publications.
