Can our librarians’ expertise help you by selecting some books for use with a class or group?

  • Are you planning a theme or topic for which you would like a selection of age-appropriate books? 
  • Use NHCPL's Teacher Request Form to allow the Children's Services staff select items for you, pull them, and have them ready at any NHCPL location for a quick pick up. 
  • If you have a few specific titles which you would like to receive as part of your selection, include those titles in your request and we’ll do our best to find them for you.
  • Please allow a minimum of 7 days' advance notice so that we may put together the best collection possible for you.

Do you need only specific titles from a curriculum list or other source?

  • Place a request for each title through the library's online catalog.
  • Library staff will pull all available titles for you and route them to your selected pickup location.
  • You can also create your curriculum lists ahead of time or save them for future use.  Here’s how to create and save lists!
