YA fiction, audio books and magazines are here, with young adult series and Manga in adjacent shelving nearby. All other teen materials are integrated with the adult collection—CDs and DVDs with media—and nonfiction books identified with a spine label of YA or blue & yellow dot.

The YA area has three computers for Internet access. These computers are reserved for use by teens only. Additional computers are available for teens in the Youth Room on the lower level.

Teachers & Group Leaders

26 March 2013 Published in Youth News

The Royal Oak Public Library, in cooperation with the Royal Oak Neighborhood Schools and the Kiwanis Club of Royal Oak, has been a partner in the national Reading is Fundamental Program for more than 30 years. This Reading is Fundamental Program provides free books to fourth graders during the school year, and to children ages birth through sixth grade during the summer.

For teachers and group leaders we offer:

  • scheduled library visits for your preschool, class, scout, or homeschool group.
  • assistance in gathering materials for your lesson planning.
  • a homework alert service to keep us informed of current assignments for students.
  • extended borrowing privileges for Royal Oak School District teachers.

Royal Oak Teachers

Teachers, administrative staff and other professional staff in the Royal Oak School District may register for borrowing privileges at the Royal Oak Public Library whether or not they live in Royal Oak. These extended privileges do not extend to Student Teachers.

In some cases, materials may be kept for longer than the usual loan periods, assuming they might be needed for curricular or classroom development. The current extended loan periods are as follows:

Material Extended Loan Period Usual Loan Period # Renewals Allowed
Adult/YA/Juvenile Books 9 Weeks 3 Weeks 0
Magazines 2 Weeks 3 Weeks 1

All other material loan periods and renewal limits are the same as those for all Royal Oak Public Library resident patrons. All usual fines, rental fees and materials replacement fees will also apply.

Assignment Alert

Give the library staff a heads-up about upcoming assignments that may bring a lot of students to the library with the Assignment Alert Form. Download the form and fax it to 248-246-3701. Mary Karshner, Head of Youth and Teen Services, welcomes your questions and comments. Contact Mary Karshner online or by phone at 248-246-3710.

Library Card

Royal Oak Public Library cards are issued without discrimination to Royal Oak residents for library services. The Royal Oak Public Library requires official identification showing the resident's name and permanent address.

Interlibrary Loan (MeLCat)

Administered by the Library of Michigan in partnership with Michigan's libraries of all types, the Michigan eLibrary provides all Michigan residents with an easy-to-use interlibrary loan system to allow Michigan residents to borrow books and other library materials for free from participating Michigan libraries.
