Book Rental F.A.Q.

Book Rental Scheme

Your Questions answered

What is a School Book Rental Scheme?

SBRS is the most efficient way of keeping the costs of books to a minimum.

How will it work?

The school will source the books required for each year. Books for the scheme will consist of new books and books donated to the school. Unless we are informed otherwise, all children will be included in the book rental scheme.  

Why should I donate books to a scheme if I can pass them on to brothers and sisters?

It may not seem beneficial at first but next year you will not have books to donate and you can get all the books for the rental fee. In the Junior Infants there are mostly workbooks on the booklists, but we can purchase these cheaper when we buy in bulk! The scheme will also fund the money for when there is a change of book in the future.

How/ When do I pay?

You may pay online from June to September.   No child will receive books unless payment has been made. 

What if during the year a book gets damaged or “eaten by a dog” ?

All books are the property of the Book Rental Scheme and should be returned in the same condition as they were received.  If the book has to be replaced, parents will be asked to pay half of the cost of the new book.  

Please remember only books that are in good condition can be donated.

Who will cover the books?

The school will cover any books to be rented.  Parents may wish to cover their child’s workbooks and copybooks.

Will I rent workbooks?  Will I buy workbooks through the school?

Any books that have to be written into cannot be rented. All books required by the children will be bought by the school and included in the rental scheme price.

Do I rent dictionaries?

No, at the moment you must buy dictionaries and atlases.

Will I label my child’s book?

All books are coded and we would ask that children do not stick any labels on the front of their books.  There is a pouch inside the front cover for children to slot in a piece of paper with their name on!

What happens to the books at the end of the year?

All books are retuned at the end of the year. The books will be collected on the last week of term.  . Please go through each rental book and rub out any pencil marks made by your child.

Who is administering the School Book Rental Scheme?

The SBRS is being organised by Ms. Dooley. She is happy to meet with any parent who wishes to discuss the scheme.

When have I to return the form stating I want to take part in the book rental scheme?

The latest date is the 17th of June. Then we can start ordering books. This is the final day and forms will not be accepted after this.

 If you have any further questions, please contact Ms Inez Dooley in the school.

Thank you


Inez Dooley
