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.
