Educators are encouraged to send information about upcoming assignments to the library by using our Assignment Alert Form. The more notice we have, the better we are able to serve you and your students by having relevant materials on hand.
The library welcomes class visits. Library staff can give tours of the library and show students how to find resources. Librarians can also do outreach visits to classrooms to deliver book talks and issue library cards. To ensure that we have adequate staff coverage, at least two weeks notice must be given. To set up an outreach visit or a class visit to the main library, contact Margie McClory; for the Farms branch, contact Dorothea Lam.
Additionally, the Bookmobile visits many local schools; check the schedule for more information.
In addition to helping you find print resources, librarians can help you access online databases which provide access to contemporary and historical magazines, journals and newspapers.
The library’s Children’s librarians work in tandem with Beverly Public Schools to create an annual summer reading list for the Beverly Public Elementary Schools.
Teachers may apply for school library cards, if they wish to keep separate personal and school library accounts. Teachers will be responsible for any items borrowed on a school card.
