Now that classes are back in session, Worthington Libraries can help you enrich your student's learning experience with a range of services just for educators.

Educator Cards are available to anyone who teaches in a K-12 school or licensed childcare center. (Verification is required.) Advantages include $25 in fine foregiveness per school year and consideration for one lost or damaged item per year.

A valid Educator Card also gives you access to Teacher Collections. Youth services staff can assemble a collection on a specific subject or by a particular author, with up to 30 items, including books, music CDs, books on CD or bilingual books. Requests can be made by phone, in person and now using an online form! Pick up is available at any of our three locations— we just need 2 weeks notice.

Want to take a field trip to the library? Contact us to arrange a visit to the library for a tour, book talk or storytime.

We can even bring the library experience to your students! Contact us to schedule a visit to your classroom for a special storytime, or book talk.

Don't forget our special services for students. We welcome referrals to our Homework Help Centers. We offer exclusive research tools specially selected for kids and teens as well as recommended reading for kids and teens, now with Lexile measures.
