Our Schools Library Service

We believe that the library should be the heart of the school.

We work with school librarians across Bedfordshire so we know that, as the role evolves, it can be difficult to keep up-to-date with the latest books and make choices for your pupils.

Rogan’s Books works in partnership with school libraries, offering help and advice, to reduce the work involved.

We work with every leading publisher in the country, so we have already filtered the huge range on offer. We hand-select the key titles best suited to your library, including:

  • Confident and fluid readers;
  • Special educational needs;
  • Non-fiction; and
  • Reluctant readers.

Whether you are looking to build up a new school library, or just looking for advice on filling specific gaps or boosting a current selection, our service makes creating a first-rate library easier than ever.

We want to help you create a library that promotes a love of books, encouraging your students to develop a love of reading!

For a minimum order of £250, this service is non-chargeable. For more details, call us on 07701 097361, or email

Author Visits

Getting children excited about reading is our goal, and we find placing authors and illustrators in front of pupils inspires them to pick up a book and dive right in. We work with schools across the county, hosting events and activities designed to inspire this love of reading.

Whether you are looking for a workshop for World Book Day, or just a general visit to boost your literacy programme, we can bring some of the UK’s leading names in children’s fiction to your school, as well as offering a full bookselling service, giving the students the lasting memory of a signed book.

To date we have welcomed Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell, Cressida Cowell, Kes Gray, Steve Cole, AF Harrold, David Litchfield, Ross Montgomery, Julia Jarman, Robin StevensJames Nicol, Steve Smallman, Sibéal Pounder, Helen MossGuy Bass and Paula Harrison, and we have a busy schedule planned for the next year.
