Parents & Teachers
Teachers can notify Library staff of major assignments and/ or provide a copy of assigned reading lists using Assignment Alerts.
You may pick out books yourself or, with three working days’ notice, request that staff choose books on a particular topic or reading level. Requests may be arranged in person by calling the Jerry Broadwell Children’s Room at (626) 821-5566. Find out more about specific services to teachers by reviewing our Services to Teachers Handout.
