Teacher Loan and Reserve Materials
Teacher Loan grants teachers a six week loan period to check out Galesburg Public Library materials for use in the classroom. Teachers are responsible for all lost and overdue materials. Materials may also be placed on reserve for use in the library. Library staff is happy to assist in selecting the teacher loan materials and assisting in the reserve process.
