We love teachers!

The Children’s Room is chock full of materials that support Common Core Standards, projects, classroom sustained silent reading, reading aloud, reading along, and listening. The Children’s Room staff are able to help locate materials in-house and elsewhere in the Minuteman system. All it takes to get help is a quick visit, phone call, email, or submission of the relevant form.

Sending us a heads-up on an upcoming project allows us to reserve the subject materials (if necessary) for students in a particular class. We are also able to search topics and help locate materials that may be owned by other libraries. Please feel free to send along the form, or call and ask questions so we can fine-tune the selection process to your specific needs.
The Woburn Public Library offers teachers working in Woburn the opportunity to register for a free Teacher Library Card. You do not need to be a Woburn resident to register for this card. To get a Teacher Library Card, you must:

• Teach in a classroom setting in Woburn, which you must verify by having the library send a postcard to your place of employment (this step is waived if the library works with your administration to create teacher library cards); and
• Show a picture I.D. with current address or a picture I.D. and a bill/mail received at your current address. If you have yet to receive mail at your current address, ask us to send you a postcard that you can use as proof of residency; and
• Fill in the Minuteman Uniform Registration Application.

In addition to the privileges granted to Woburn library card holders, Teacher Library Cards provide the following benefits:

• An extended loan period of 9 weeks,
• Access to Woburn-specific e-resources even if cardholder is not a Woburn resident,
• Ability to borrow classroom deposit collections.
Let the library know about an upcoming assignment or project! With your notification, Children's Room Staff can ensure availability of appropriate materials.
If you are planning a unit on a particular topic and would like a selection of library books to keep in your classroom, please complete this form:
  • Add a new row
  • *Please note: books may be borrowed for a total of 9 weeks ; this is the typical 3-week loan period with 2 3-week renewals. If books on this topic are being widely requested by all schools, the deposit collection may not be as large as desired (i.e., holi- day books;, science fair books)
