For Teachers


Teacher Services

The Youth Services Department maintains an active interest in education and provides several special services to teachers. 

School Visits and Book Talk Requests

The Northbrook Public Library wants to provide the best visit possible with the most comprehensive information. In order to ensure a successful visit, we ask that you give us an advance notice of at least three weeks. This ensures that we can gather and plan the fitting amount of resources and information. Thank you for your understanding!

Librarians will respond to your school visit and book talk requests within two business days.
