Library-To-Go Boxes

Is your class working on a project or doing research on a particular subject?

Let us prepare a "Library to Go" box of Library materials for you!

What is a "Library-to-Go" box?
This is a box of supplemental, curriculum-related books, DVD's (or) set of literature-circle books to augment a specific classroom unit or provide more independent reading choices for your students. Your classroom may keep these books for up to 4 weeks. Teachers interested in obtaining a Library-to-Go box, must complete a Teacher Library Card application (attached below) and fax it to 510.337.1571

Library-to-Go boxes may be customized to relate to a specific topic the class is studying  (e.g., Civil War, endangered animals or planets).Teachers may ask for specific books or simply indicate a topic and have the library find appropriate books (or a combination of both).
How do I request a "Library to Go" box?
Please email your specific request to the School Resource Liaison at at least 2 weeks in advance.
We'll let you know when your box is ready for pick up at the front desk of the main library.
