Here’s what a few of our thousands of customers think of our service:


We have used Laburnum House several times and have always received fantastic service. They have a wide range of great quality books at excellent prices. It is very easy to get books tailored to your needs. The children have always looked forward to getting the ‘new arrivals’ in school and can’t wait to read them. We even had several staff wanting to read the books before the children this time!

Sarah Jefferies – Assistant Principal – Outwood Primary Academy Kirkhamgate


Laburnum books have provided a fantastic service: I couldn’t have restocked the library in such a short time without their help. Laburnum provided AR labelled books with jackets if needed, for a wide range of abilities and interests. Laburnum worked to my deadline and budget without question: a friendly and accommodating company.

Alison – Literacy Coordinator/Resource Centre Manager – Kepier school


Medina College have been running the AR programme for two years and the progress in students reading and volume of the books being read far outstripped the current capacity of our library.As a busy assistant head I was looking for quick, easy, reliable service that was good value for money.Laburnum offered all of these things. Service was excellent with Laburnum producing the order to my specific requirements.

Will Doyle – Assistant Headteacher – Medina College


We have been using Laburnum House for several years and have always been really pleased with the service. Deliveries and collections are quick and efficient, the accelerated reading books are clearly labelled and this makes these books available to use within school immediately. Staff are very helpful and are keen to help with any queries or orders.

Dawn McGuire (Reading Manager) – Longroyde Primary School


Laburnum House offer excellent choice of high quality, well priced texts, which all of our pupils thoroughly enjoy.It is fantastic to get a range of titles sent into school, so that all staff can have a really good look at them before we buy them! This means that we can tailor our choices to our own pupils and really choose books which we know will interest and challenge them.Highly recommended!
