Classroom Visits

Our School Liaisons regularly visit our local schools. The School Liaison usually schedules her visits through the School Media Specialists, but you can contact any of the Liaisons to arrange for a special visit. With enough advance notice, they can prepare presentations on subjects like science fair projects. They can read stories or deliver book talks to get kids excited about reading.


School Loans

Our librarians are happy to help you locate the materials you need for your classes. If you would like us to pull materials for you, please give us 24 hours notice. You will find more information about our delivery service and a request form here.


Teacher Cards

Any teacher whose school is located in the Library District can receive a teacher card free of charge, regardless of their home address. Books checked out on a teacher card have a three-week loan period and can be renewed if they are not on hold. DVDs may be checked for three weeks. Teachers are responsible for the materials checked out on their cards. Please download the Teacher Card Statement of Responsibility and Teacher Card Information Sheet. Please send your Teacher Card Statement of Responsibility to Patron Services.


Library Visits

We love classes to come visit the Library! You can work with our school liaisons to have a presentation of some kind and a tour. We also work with entire schools who want to make a Literacy Night visit with parents! Contact our school liaisons above to make arrangements.
