Teacher/Parent Resource Request

Request a number of books or other resources around a certain theme or subject.

If you are a teacher, day care provider, or parent, we can gather for you children's library resources about a certain subject or theme. Please let us know what you need and the ages or grades of the students. We will gather items from the Decatur Public Library children's collection to fit your request. We'll call or email if we have questions.

Please give us 2 working days (M-F) to gather your items, and they'll be waiting for you upstairs at the Children's Desk. You can look them over and decide which will meet your needs and check them out.

If you want to request specific titles for pick-up, use the online catalog, and check our lists of books on particular themes.

If you have questions, or if you would like us to also request items for you from other libraries in our system, call the Children's Desk at 217-424-2900 ext. 5.
