Teachers and Educators

Teachers, homeschooling parents, child care providers, and group organizers – KPL has a range of services and collections available to help you and your students. At this time, we will not be providing library tours or visiting locations until further notice. However, we would love to visit your class virtually! Please contact us if you would like to schedule a virtual visit.

Can we get library cards?

Yes. For teachers, please print the registration form. Make copies for your students and send them home. Include your name and school name at the top, so we know which school the cards are for. When you have collected the completed forms from parents, drop them off at your local library.

Students who have had cards in the past may not get new cards. Students who have lost their cards, but have no books checked out and owe no fines, will get a replacement card for free.

Visiting the Library

Library visits include stories and a tour, with general information about library services. We can include activities, research assistance, or book talks, depending on the needs of your group.
