Lending Library

Who can check out Lending Library items?

The items pictured below are available to any educator in our 5 Oregon counties (Gilliam, Hood River, Sherman, Wasco, and Wheeler) as well as educators in Klicktat & Skamania counties in Washington.  Items are available for use at no-charge to educators and include delivery to/from your school.

Lending Library Process

To request an item from our Lending Library, please complete our Lending Library Request Form. As part of this process, you will also be asked to request a 2-month period of time you would like to reserve our STEM materials using our Reservation Window Viewing Form. Prior to completing the Request Form, please review the Viewing Form to ensure the items you are hoping to borrow haven't already been checked out by another educator.

For each Lending Window time-frame, our Staff provides delivery & pick-up of your requested items to/from your school.
