Teachers & Group Leaders

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.
