Lending Libraries

Catapult Learning’s Lending Libraries are a cost-effective, turnkey solution for providing academic resources to your students and staff. After an initial consultation to gain an understanding of your school’s goals, our team of experts manages the design, procurement, and implementation of your lending library. Once set up, the library offers extensive learning resources for your school community.

Student Lending Libraries:

Enrich your students’ learning experiences by providing a diverse set of reading materials in your lending library. Facilitate small-group learning by stocking multiple copies of book titles to organize reading. Or, focus on providing single copies of titles to provide a vast range of books to encourage students to explore their own interests. We’ll create a multi-age library that encourages individual exploration and supports your school’s varied reading audience.

Teacher Lending Libraries:

Provide your teachers with a comprehensive collection of materials to support professional learning. We tailor these collections to your needs and interests, including a mix of reading, writing, math, and learning theory reference materials that come in a variety of formats, including books and DVDs. Ensure your teachers have access to the latest and best proven techniques, methods, and skills to support your instructional priorities and initiatives.

Libraries are customized to your school needs.
