The Teacher Collection is located at the bottom of the stairs.
A Story Bag is a collection of fiction and non-fiction books and some related materials that are theme centered. All of the books in the Story Bags can also be found on our shelves. You may search the Card Catalog with the title of the Story Bags. If you have used Story Bags in the past, we have changed their content and removed some items. Some of these items and puppets will now be available for check out separate from the Story Bags. Please check with the Youth Services Coordinator to find out what is available.
