““ We have been using Browns Books for students for over 5 years and we have always found them to be very efficient book suppliers. We have also found that they are friendly and helpful when you phone regarding any issues to do with the purchasing of books. We would highly recommend them to other local authorities and schools.””

Cleo Jones , Manager:Information and Learning Resources , The City of Edinburgh Council

“We chose the VLeBooks platform above all others because it is UK school-orientated and not a public library model. The ability to view books online, rather than having to download, makes the platform much more flexible when used in a classroom situation. As well as being available on any mobile technology with internet access, it is also linked to our network”

Mrs Caroline Hedges , Learning Resource Centre Manager, Bedford Girls School

“I think the new website is much less time consuming ie the organisation of the books means I can go straight to a particular set. I think the Accelerated Reader link is brilliant too, as an AR school nearly all our fiction comes from AR sources and it is great that they are in their own area. Colour banded book area is also very useful and great that you can select from a range of publishers. As always your service has always been exemplary - which is why we always use you!”

Jackie Keith, Deputy Headteacher, Bygrove Primary School

“The reason we initially chose Browns Books for Students was that they were the perfect fit for our needs, offering good service with value for money. Our account was set up with ease and the servicing profile created for us required minimal input. The website is easy to navigate and has useful features such as popularity lists. The pricing is clear and having current stock levels is very important in my role. Ordering is easy and confirmation is instant. Delivery is quick and items are always well packaged. The VLeBooks platform does not disappoint. Again, set up was quick and easy and any technical queries have been dealt with efficiently. Value for money is important and across print and ebooks we have found Browns very competitive indeed and having both user/credit options for ebooks adds flexibility. Overall, I’ve been very pleased with Browns Books for Students, I feel you get a whole service from them and nothing ever seems too much trouble. I would highly recommend them.”

Jamie Green, Librarian, Halesowen College

“"As a college we are very impressed with the fast, friendly and efficient service we receive from Browns Books for Students. From ordering textbooks to the latest Teen fiction we always enjoy a quality service. A service which has recently been enhanced by a much improved website. Searching for books or checking my accounts is now even easier with this meaner, cleaner and distinctly user friendly online facility." ”

Robert Logan, Libraries , Q.E. Academy

“Westlands School has been a customer of Brown Books for several years now and they have proved to be an outstanding company. Their service is excellent and deliveries are extremely quick especially on stock items. They are always competitive on price and generally cannot be beaten. Even if I have done price comparisons with other suppliers, Browns Books generally come out the cheapest. Whenever I have had any queries, they have always been dealt with efficiently and proactively. I would strongly recommend other schools using Browns Books. ”

Michala Chappell, Finance Assistant, Westlands School

“We were struggling to find a supplier, then we discovered BBfS! From the very beginning, the level of service has been outstanding all round and their prices are very competitive. The website is an invaluable tool in a library setting and the online ordering process is very straightforward. Delivery times are excellent and a lot of care is taken with the packaging of the books, which makes me a happy librarian! If I’ve had a slight issue or query, the customer services staff have always dealt with it in a professional and efficient manner, sorting out whatever the issue was. They will also ring from time to time to check all is well with the service. I am extremely pleased to have found BBfS and use them for 99% of my book orders. I look forward to using them as our preferred supplier for many, many years to come. ”
