    Cork County Library provides a limited class novel loan scheme to primary schools in the county. The collection spans junior infants to 6th class level. These books are loaned on a temporary basis and the scheme operates as follows: 

    * Each school is allowed to borrow multiple copies of one book for a school term (e.g. The Witches x 30 copies)  
    * Schools are allowed to borrow only one set of books in each academic year
    * Requests and enquiries can be placed via email to
    * Books can be collected from either a local branch library or from a mobile library, where appropriate.
    Please note the scheme is for primary schools only. The Class Novels Catalogue, can be accessed by clicking this link Class Novels. This catalogue outlines the titles available and a short summary of each one.


    Teachers can now borrow from our Teaching Resource Collection  which includes a large collection of photocopiable resource material on topics including literacy, numeracy, art, behavioural issues etc.  Also available are a selection of books on special needs education including Autism, Aspergers and Dyslexia.  Should you wish to borrow from this collection, please email your requests to
