Teacher Bins

Available Tween Teacher Bins!


Books Bins are a small collection of nonfiction/fiction titles connected to a specific theme/topic that could be kept in a 4th-8th grade classroom for a month-long check out period in an effort to help support teachers throughout the school year.


Below you will find some examples  of available bins featuring 15-20 titles, However we can tailor bins specifically for your classroom needs on any subject..  Individual titles may be subject to availability and can be tailored to a classroom’s specific needs.  You may even find something brand new thrown in at the last minute!  Bins can be checked out for a 1 month loan period and Tween Librarian, Marisa Hall, will be handling Bin Drop Off & Pick Up from school buildings.
