Textbook rental schemes loan textbooks to children and charge a small rental fee. The books are owned by the board of management of the school and are rented out each year to students. Many schools run textbook rental schemes. The cost of renting the books from the school is much lower than buying the books in a bookshop. Usually the schemes cover conventional textbooks, but in some schemes electronic books and/or readers are included.
