The Teacher Assistance service allows teachers to submit requests to library staff for collections of items for use in the classroom or in the library. Library staff carefully select classroom-appropriate materials matching the criteria given by the teacher, such as specific titles or subject areas, grade or reading level, and type of material. Selected items may come from the branch's own collection or will be requested in from other branch collections.
Use of the Teacher Assistance service requires submission of the Teacher Assistance Form, which can be filled out online and emailed to the preferred library branch, or can be printed out, completed, and faxed or hand-delivered to the preferred library branch. We ask that the form be received by the library branch four (4) weeks prior to when the items are needed. This allows our staff to manage many requests at once and to select the best materials possible to fill these requests.

(If an email message does not automatically open with the form attached, save the form to your computer and manually attach it to an email. Send the email to email@example.com.)
