Teacher Services

Lake Villa District Library provides school services to Lake Villa and Lindenhurst preschools, elementary, middle, and high schools. Please contact Rachel Reinwald, School Liaison Librarian, for more information on receiving school services, at rreinwald@lvdl.org or 847.245.5113. We offer fine-free materials borrowing, in-school booktalks, library resource and tech lessons, professional development for teachers, storytimes, and field trips to the library. See below for more information.

Teacher Rewards

Teachers at schools within Lake Villa District Library boundaries will receive raffle tickets for using LVDL school services. Tickets will be drawn on the first Monday of October, December, February, April, and June. If we pull your ticket, you can come in to pick out a book to keep for your classroom library. See details for school services eligible for raffle tickets.

Professional Development Workshops

Did you know we offer free professional development workshops for educators? Illinois K-12 teachers can receive professional development credits for attending our workshops. We cover all kinds of interesting topics throughout the school year! This page will show future workshop descriptions and dates as well as archived handouts from previous workshops. To suggest topics for future workshops, please contact Rachel Reinwald at rreinwald@lvdl.org or 847.245.5113.

School Card

Need to pick up a handful or two of materials in a pinch? The School Card is the perfect solution. Here's how it works:

  • Come to the library, choose up to 10 items, show your school ID at the Youth Services Desk and check out your materials
  • You can also call in advance and we'll hold your requested items up to 24 hours
  • Items check out for the normal timeframe (3 weeks for books and audio materials; 1 week for DVDs and magazines)
  • This service is available to schools within the library district

Classroom Connection Bag Request

Classroom Connection bags are a way to use library materials to support your curriculum. You give us a topic, and we give you a bag filled with books, magazines, DVDs, and/or CDs. It’s perfect for a special assignment or unit.

Please fill out the form to let us know what you want—we just need a week's notice. We’ll contact you when your bag is ready to be picked up. This service is available to schools within the library district.
