School is back in session! We proudly support teachers and educators with a variety of resources.
In addition to a personal library card, a Teacher’s Card is available for professional needs and should be used for educational purposes only. Teachers, daycare providers and homeschool instructors can sign up for a Teacher’s Card. We do not charge overdue fines for items checked out on a Teacher’s Card.
Teacher’s Cards are not restricted to Campbell County teachers or residents. Just bring in current proof of employment or verification of homeschool participation to receive your card.
With a little notice, we can pull items to help with projects you assign. We can work with you to pull books and audio materials for you to check out and use in your classroom.
We also can pull books for your students to use at the library. This way you can guarantee that all of your students will be able to find helpful materials.
Take a Trip to the Library
Did you know that we give tours of the library to school groups? For younger students, tours include stories and a tour of our collection. Older students are provided instruction on using the online catalog, web resources and how to find materials in our collection. Call to schedule a visit.
Librarians are available to visit your classroom. We can provide stories and other activities. We can also talk about programs and resources we have to offer. Please request visits a few weeks in advance.
We Have Computers
Our computers have Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher. Your students CAN get their projects completed! Before sending students, remind them that they need a valid library card to access our computers.
Great Online Resources
We subscribe to online databases that cover a wide range of topics. We also subscribe to online services that allow students to access skill improvement courses and online practice tests for Advance Placements exams and college entrance exams. These testing services can be accessed from school or from home with a library card and its password.
