Education Collection

The West Bend Library's Education Collection exists to support parents, educators, tutors and homeschool families. Located on the second floor by the public internet computers, these books have call numbers that start with EDU and include curriculum materials, activity ideas, strategies for working with students, and more. This collection is growing every day, and largely relies on community input for its continued development. To make a suggestion for purchase, or to learn more about the Education Collection, contact Hannah at hkane@west-bendlibrary.org.

Librarian Visits

Our Youth Services librarians visit classrooms, attend career day events, and staff tables at resource fairs as often as we can. Common classroom visit topics include upcoming library events, how to get and use a library card, how to use the public library for classroom projects, getting excited about the Summer Reading Program, and more! The more advance notice we have, the more likely we'll be able to accommodate your request for a visit. Contact us to see what's possible!

Library Tours

Librarian-guided tours of the library are available as librarian time permits, and should be scheduled with a librarian in advance. Over the years, we find kids get the most out of a tour in groups of 25 or less. Tours typically take about 30 minutes. Contact a librarian to set up your tour today! (Librarians are not available for tours May-August, as that's our busiest time - summer reading.)

Teacher Library Cards

The purpose of Teacher Library Cards is to enhance the curriculum and materials on hand in the classroom. Each year, principals receive an authorized borrowers contract. Each Teacher Library Card is good for one school year only and must be updated each year. Cards are kept at the West Bend Library so you don't have to worry about losing them. These cards can access our online resources and databases. Through the Monarch Library System and WISCAT, we have easy access to many copies of the same title. If you would like to request multiple copies of a book, email Hannah at hkane@west-bendlibrary.org.

If you are a principal or head of an educational institution and would like more information about Teacher Library Cards, please contact Emily Laws, Head of Circulation at elaws@west-bendlibrary.org.
