The 2014 Preschool and Child Care Directory provides information on over 60 area facilities that provide services for children ages six and under. You may view and print the directory form this site or pick up a free copy at the Royal Oak Public Library.
If you are a preschool or child care provider, you can have your facility listed in the 2015 directory and can reserve a table at the Preschool Information Night. Both of these services are free of charge. There are also opportunities to place a paid advertisement in the directory, which reaches over 5,000 people. A registration form will be provided online in October 2014.
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.
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.
