For Teachers

A Note from Your Youth Services Librarians:

We are here to help! The Grafton-Midview Public Library is committed to supporting local educators through our collection, programming, class visits, educator cards, and more. Please visit the Library, call us at (440) 926-3317, or email us at gmplkids@gmail.com for more information about the services below. 

Assignments, Projects, and Materials: Let us help you supplement your curriculum! We are eager to make our collection accessible to educators and students. With advance notice, Youth Services Librarians can pull materials and create booklists for specific projects and topics. We can also help students navigate the research process, online resources, and databases.

Classroom Visits and Outreach: If you are unable to visit the library, let the library come to you! Are you interested in a storytime? Booktalks? Database or technology instruction? Please contact us about scheduling a classroom visit from one of our Youth Services Librarians. 

Library Visits and Programs: Schedule a visit and bring your class to the library! Visits generally consist of a tour of the Library, information about the Library's resources, and the chance to get a library card and check out materials. 

Educator Card: We offer educator cards with extended loan periods to teachers, homeschooling parents, and daycare staff. To apply for an Educator Card, please visit the Library to complete an application. See the details about educator cards in the pdf document below.
