 Teacher Baskets
 
A teacher basket is a collection of up to fifteen items on a subject, fiction, nonfiction or a combination of both thoughtfully selected by the Children's staff, for use by public school or homeschool teachers. The baskets take time to prepare, so please give us 3-5 days notice. Baskets may be requested using the online form provided or by calling the library at 859-885-3523. We will call or e-mail you when your basket is ready for pick up.
