Classroom Collections

Hey, teachers!  Ready for another exciting school year?  Remember, the library is here to help!  There’s a special service we offer to educators: classroom collections.  We’ve made a few recent changes to our classroom collection program in order to get you the most relevant materials to assist with your lesson plans.

A classroom collection is an assortment of books on a topic that you specify, selected by a librarian and pre-checked out to you, so you can just bring your library card to the circulation desk and pick up your collection quickly.  We ask that you give us at least seven days to assemble your collection – more, if it’s a highly specific or seasonally popular topic.  That allows us to find the best books for you, even requesting some from other libraries in our consortium.  Do you have multiple topics in mind?  We’ll include up to four different topics in one classroom collection.  Want specific titles?  We’d be glad to pull those for you as well – just give us a list.

To request a classroom collection, call the Main Library Children’s Department at 740-349-5550, email, or visit our website
