Welcome back to the new school year Darien Teachers!Back to school books and an apple on the teacher's desk in front of a blackboard

This summer has been a busy one for us. Your students were voracious readers and challenged our Readers' Advisory skills to find the perfect book for each reader for weeks on end! We had fun in our Summer Reading Program and we hope they did too.

Our hope with this section of our website is to share interesting links that we find with you that will support your work in the classroom. We think a lot about the 21st Century Learning Standards for students even though we are a public library and are always on the lookout for the best resources for our students.

In an effort to make sure that all students have equitable access to library resources (not just the early birds!), we have a feature we hope you will try out this year. On the upper right hand side of this page, you will see an Assignment Alert. This is a form you can use to alert us that you have given an assignment to your students so that we can have the resources available to meet your students' needs.
