New Backpacks Are Here!
Are you a homeschooling parent, looking for topic-centered materials for your history and science studies? We are currently working to put together "backpacks" on high-demand subjects:
the Civil Rights Movement
the Civil War
Colonial America/the Revolutionary War
Coming to America (Early Era Immigration)
the Dust Bowl/Great Depression
the Industrial Revolution
Pioneer Days/Westward Expansion
the Vietnam War
World War I
World War II
Backpacks include 3-4 titles of both fiction and nonfiction works on the subject, providing learners opportunities to learn the facts and engage in the stories that make learning come alive.
If you are an instructor and have an assignment for your students that requires research, you can inform the library of the assignment to make us aware of what students may come looking for. We will make sure to be prepared for these students, knowing what resources to direct them to and how to serve them most efficiently and beneficially.
Tours of the library can be a wonderful way to introduce children and young adults to all the library has to offer. Contact us to schedule a library tour for your class or group.
Young people’s staff travel to different schools and events to engage children and youth in library activities and nurture their love of reading. These speaking programs may be scheduled through the Young People’s Department at the library.
Special Reserve Collections:
If you have specific topics for students to read and/or study, you can contact us at the library to arrange for these resources to be set aside, ensuring that they are available when students come.
Teacher Resource Collection:
The Young People's Department has a specific collection of books that provide instructional ideas, information, and materials.
We can gather resources specific to a topic and hold them at the Circulation Desk for you to review and check out at your convenience.
