School Services for Middle School and High School Teachers
The Mount Prospect Public Library has many services and programs to support your curriculum. Our Teen staff can help you expand your classroom experience through access to materials and activities to engage your students. We value the opportunity to collaborate with you and serve your school community. A more detailed description of services can be found in our School Services Flyer for Grades 6-12.
Getting Materials from the Library
Teachers from Mount Prospect schools have the opportunity to check out books using their school’s Library account. If you provide the topic, we can select books that meet your need. If you would prefer to select your own materials, please stop by the Library and browse our collection. There’s no need to remember a card–we have all of the information for your school card at the Fiction/AV/Teen Desk.
Request a school book bag via our web form. Please allow 72 hours for your request to be filled.
School Visits and Library Tours
The Library offers exciting educational programs for you and your students. Staff members will visit your school to present these special programs, or you can arrange to visit the Library. Please contact our Teen Outreach Librarian to schedule a visit or tour: firstname.lastname@example.org
Databases and Online Resources Demonstrations
Have a big research assignment or project coming up? The Library provides free access to online subscription databases and sources that can provide your students with the resources they need to ace their assignments. These resources can be accessed remotely with a Library card or by anyone on a Library computer. The Teen Outreach Librarian will put together a presentation on the resources that will help students find the quality information they’re looking for.
We encourage teachers to submit information about upcoming assignments to the Library. Special accommodations can then be made to help students maximize their research experience. Please contact us to share your upcoming assignments: email@example.com
