Our customers say

I've always wanted a Peters library and it doesn't disappoint! The furniture is bright and sturdy and the pupils (and all our visitors) absolutely love our new library space. We love it!

C. Dunnaker, Librarian, King Edward VI Northfield School for Girls

The expert team of librarians at Peters created a fantastic book list to complement the KS3 English knowledge-rich curriculum of one of our schools, saving us hours of work and broadening book choices. These now provide a great resource in the school library to support students’ understanding of the topics in the curriculum and extend their reading.

Nicola Gale, Project Manager, School Development Support Agency

The books Peters selected are excellent - new, current and perfectly pitched to our children's interests. The books have reinvigorated enthusiasm for reading across the school and are worth every penny we spent!
