OUTREACH
FOR TEACHERS & PARENTS

Our library has a variety of resources available, free to use, that can benefit teachers, parents, and students. From story times to database and e-reader training to library visits and tours, we're happy to introduce you to what we have to offer! Click here for more information.

If you would like assistance in finding books on a selected topic, we would be happy to find the materials you need. Simply fill out our assignment alert form to get started.

Assignment alerts are designed to help you obtain the resources you need to enhance your students' learning. Whether it be a classroom set of novels, customized bibliography, reference books, etc., we can help! We can drop the books off and pick them up, or put them aside at the library for you to pick up. It's as simple as that.
