Teacher Collections

aram-child-educatorIf you need materials on a particular subject, you can contact the library, tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ll collect them for you! It’s that simple!

Just a few notes about the program:

  • Each collection will consist of anywhere from 2 to 10 books on a particular subject. Please note that collections will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Teacher collections do not have to be limited to nonfiction titles. Requests can be made for reading collections to help freshen up your classroom library offerings.
  • The books included will come from Aram Public Library’s collection. Are all the books on your desired topic checked out?  Don’t hesitate to ask for help getting materials from other libraries in our system!
  • The materials can be checked out on a personal card OR an institution card. Please note: materials on a personal card will follow standard checkout timelines, whereas institution cards have a longer checkout period.
  • Due to having limited staff, we cannot deliver the books to you. However, we’ll have them ready and waiting for you here at the library!

To request a Teacher Collection, please contact the library. Be sure to include any relevant specifications, including—but not limited to—age range, fiction vs. nonfiction, and date/time frame needed.

Class Visits, Library Tours, and More!

Would you like Ms. Katherine to come to your class room to promote library materials or programs?  Looking to ensure that your entire class has access to the library by signing everyone up for library cards?  Maybe you want to bring your class to the library for a tour or the chance to use items from Lakeshores traveling Equipment Co-op?  Perhaps you have another idea entirely?  Contact Ms. Katherine with any needs or ideas you might have and she will work with you to make those ideas into reality!
