Our Youth and Family Services Team are working on plans for the classroom books project called Great Crates. Sometime in October, participating teachers at Crestwood, D7, and Westwood Schools will be able to receive a box of library books to be shared in their classroom. About every five weeks, the library will pick the books up and come back with a different set. The teachers will also have a classroom library account that gives access to our online resources, plus it can be used to request particular items for in-school use.
