Teacher Assistance

Scenic Regional Library and the Washington Public Library have partnered to offer a teacher’s assistance service to educators in Franklin, Gasconade, and Warren counties. The service allows teachers to submit a request online for their classroom and have library materials delivered to their school. (Teachers can also choose to pick up the materials at the branch or library nearest to their school.) When the materials are delivered, the teacher can also schedule a pickup time.
Educators teaching in Franklin, Gasconade, and Warren Counties are eligible for an Institution Library Account to use for checking out instructional materials. The Teacher Assistance Program allows teachers to request up to fifty items at a time, including DVDs, CDs, books, and audiobooks. They can request specific titles or materials about a subject, such as “children’s books about planets”. Educators can also use the service to request materials to assist with lesson planning. The free service is available to educators at preschools, daycares, private schools, and public schools.
