Teachers in Wheeling Township Elementary District 21 will have expanded access to resources in the coming school year, thanks to a partnership with the Indian Trails Public Library District.
An intergovernmental agreement, approved July 16 by the Indian Trails board of trustees and July 17 by the District 21 school board, expands the type of materials teachers may access from the library to use within the classroom. Indian Trails serves a majority of the district's students.
"This partnership will give our teachers access to great and varied resources and will reinforce the library's value to our students," said Kate Hyland, District 21 superintendent. "We are very fortunate to be partnering with the Indian Trails Library and are proud to be responsible stewards of the community's resources."
"Indian Trails is pleased to offer access to the library's resources to District 21 teachers," said Brian Shepard, Library Director. "These type of partnerships are so beneficial to our community."
