Teacher Resources

Teacher Packs

Call your local library one week in advance, or fill out our form, to request a selection of books to check out for your classroom.  Seasonal items may be limited due to popular demand. Also ask us about delivery services!

Book Lists

We can put together lists of materials on a particular topic for groups. Contact the Children’s Department at 419-521-3130 or your local branch at least one month in advance to request a book list.

Discovery Kits

These hands-on, interactive kits are available for check out. Each kit includes a variety of books, educational DVDs, music CDs, games, activities, and hands-on fun! Here are the kits currently available.

Discovery Kits check out for three weeks just like juvenile books and can be put on hold and renewed if no holds exist. You can find the Discovery Kits in the Children’s Department at Main Library or place a hold through our catalog or library staff.

Teacher Cards

Teachers who live or work in Ohio are eligible for a teacher card which allows extended checkout and certain privileges.

Programs for Students

These enrichment programs will enhance your students’ understanding of lessons taught in the classroom. Call your local library at least three weeks in advance to schedule a program.

  • Book talks: Get your students excited about reading with book talks from a selection of books on a theme of your choice.
  • Library Orientation: Discover the resources available at the library and learn how to find them with a guided tour and introduction.
  • Class Research Projects: Bring your class to the Library to research those special projects via the library’s electronic resources.

Research Databases

The library has several research databases available on our web site that can be used to find valid resources for assignments or lesson plans right from school or home.
