Come Visit Us... ...or We'll Visit You!
Teachers and their students are welcome to visit the library as a group. The Children’s Services Staff would also be happy to visit students in preschool through eighth grade during the school year, highlighting good books, teaching library skills, giving demos of online resources, and promoting the Summer Reading Club. To schedule a school visit or tour of the library, please call Renee Grassi, Head of Children’s Services at 847.835.5056 ext. 203 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a research project or genre study coming up in your classroom, librarians can create a display of books to support your curriculum. Send an email to email@example.com with your grade level and topic, and we’ll create the display.

Finding Non-Fiction Materials
Are your students looking for non-fiction materials for their research assignment? We’ve identified books that are perfect for Central School research projects and made them easy to find. When you browse the library shelves, look for big, bright-red YA labels on books in both the adult and children’s nonfiction collections. This label tells you that the book is written at a level of vocabulary and detail that should work for you.
