Custom Material Selections

What are Custom Material Selections?

Teachers, homeschoolers and other educators looking for unit materials can request a Custom Material Selection.

Staff in the Youth Department will collect up to 30 items on the subject(s) of your choice for your classroom, preschool through 12th grade. You can submit a request online, in person, or over the phone to either our Tremont Road Branch (614) 486-9621 or our Lane Road Branch (614) 459-0273.

In order to serve you better, please note the following guidelines:

  • Staff require 5 days to gather your materials.
  • Your collection will be available for pick up 5 days after the day of your request. If you would like to have your collection available on a later date please set a future date below.
  • Requests may be placed up to two weeks in advance.
  • Your collection will be held at the Customer Service Department with the reserves for 3 days. Look for your collection on the “Custom Material Selections” reserve shelf near the alphabetized holds.
  • You may request one collection at a time, and as soon as the first is picked up we can start working on another.
  • Any number of subjects may be requested for a collection, but the total number of books in a collection will be 30 books or less.
  • We’ll be happy to include up to 5 specific titles.
  • Seasonal/Holiday items are limited to 5 items and are subject to availability.
  • Online Custom Material Selections requests are available at the Lane Road and Tremont Road branches only.
