Teacher Assistance

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are not able to fulfill teacher assistance requests at this time.

The Teacher Assistance service allows teachers to submit requests to library staff for collections of items for use in the classroom. 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, or can be printed out, completed, and hand-delivered to the preferred Library branch.

We ask that the form be submitted two (2) 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.
