NYC School Librarian Guidebook: Teacher Sets

A blueprint to the policies, standards, and procedures that enable library personnel to develop, organize, and manage exemplary school library programs.

Teacher Sets

Teacher Sets allow educators to request multiple books at one time for an extended loan period (60 days).  The delivery time is one week (if set is available) with one renewal allowed (pending there are no existing holds).  All Teacher Sets use NYPL materials.
