We have many resources for educators in grades pre-K – 12. Our collection enhances teacher and student resources already available through the school system.
We can pull books and have them ready for your students. Please fill out the assignment form and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also fax the form to 585-798-4398. We will do our best to have resources ready and available for your students. In addition to the resources below, many informative online collections and databases are available from our website.
Any staff member can assist with reference questions. We also participate in AskUs 24/7, an online service to help you answer or find the answers to any question even when we are closed.
We currently subscribe to Ask, Beanz, Cobblestone, and National Geographic Kids.
For the classroom
We have story-based kits and book discussion kits. Story-based kits include picture books, activities and more. Book discussion kits include multiple copies of a chapter book, a folder of activities and more. These kits are owned and kept at NIOGA so please allow time for us to receive your kit, a minimum 1 week. Call or e-mail the library for more information.
