Educators

Just call us the teacher’s pet.

We have the backs of local teachers as they help to bring up the next generation, whether you’re teaching in a daycare, at a preschool, for K-12 or in your home. The library is with you:

  • In the classroom introducing kids to the Library
  • At your desk as you develop learning experiences to support the curriculum
  • As you provide tools to kids to keep discovering, learning and growing
