Teacher Collection Requests

A teacher may request a collection for his/her classroom or homeschool. Requests may be made by topics or specific titles using the appropriate request form below.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for the collection to be prepared.  If books must be ordered through interlibrary loan, please allow up to four weeks. When the collection is ready for pick-up, an email or phone message will be sent.  Collections must be picked up within seven days. The collection will be bagged and checked out in advance. Please bring your photo ID to the circulation desk to pick up your collection.
