Assignment Alert

To further assist you in the classroom, you may notify the Youth Services staff of an upcoming class lesson, project or assignment.  The staff can pull books and display them for your students’ use during a library visit.  Materials can also be placed on hold for library use only to ensure they are available for your students or materials can be placed on hold at the front desk for teacher checkout for use in the classroom.  We can also prepare a topic pathfinder for you or your students use.
