Teacher Bookbag Request

Library materials are available for an extended checkout period through our Teacher Loan and Bookbag Service. A Youth Services librarian will select up to 30 fiction and/or nonfiction items to fit your criteria for specific curriculum units, special projects, or to supplement classroom resources. A minimum of seven (7) days notice is required for bookbag requests, and as much lead-time as possible is suggested.

To request a bookbag, contact the Library in the following ways:

  • Download the Teacher Bookbag Request, complete it online at your convenience, and send it to Susan Heist Carlson via fax at 847.637.7797 or as an attachment.
  • Print, complete, and mail the Teacher Bookbag Request to:
        Susan Heist Carlton
        Skokie Public Library Youth Services Department

        Skokie, Illinois  60077
  • Call the Youth Services Desk at 847.324.3149.
  • Visit the Youth Services Department in person.

Bookbags must be picked up from the Youth Services Department at the Library or from the Bookmobile at one of its regular stops in the community. Bookbags will be held at the Youth Services Desk for 3 days after pickup notification unless special arrangements have been made.
