  • At least 14 days are required to assemble a Classroom Collection request.
  • Collections can include fiction, non-fiction and audiovisual materials.
  • Multiple copies of specific items are considered a classroom collection.
  • Hot topic and seasonal items may be limited due to their popularity among teachers.
  • Collections are held for seven days after their pick-up date. Any collections not picked up will be re-shelved.
