TeachingBooks.net is an easy-to-use website that adds multimedia dimension to the reading experiences of children's and young adult books. The online database is developed and maintained to include thousands of resources about fiction and nonfiction books used in the K-12 environment, with every resource selected to encourage the integration of multimedia author and book materials into reading and library activities. These resources include: author interviews, Meet-the-Author movies, book guides and lesson plans, video book trailers, audio and video book readings, audio name pronunciations, as well as links to authors' personal websites and blogs.

If you've checked out an ERS Library book kit (8-30 copies of the same title) in the last 18-24 months, you've probably noticed the black and orange QR code flyer included in the packet/box. Scanning this code with your smartphone, or using the access directions at the bottom of the flyer, will take you directly to a wealth of resources for your chosen title.

You Design, We Print!

Have a great idea for a poster that supports an upcoming lesson? Need a customized chart to keep your classroom a little more organized? Want a fun way to let your favorite school teams know you're cheering them on? We can help you with that!  

Design your poster on an 8.5"X11" page in Microsoft Word, Publisher, Excel; Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign. Use high-quality images and avoid copyrighted artwork (Disney, Marvel, etc.). Save your document as a PDF, open the PDF to make sure it looks exactly as you want, then email that file to library@ersconnect.org. You'll also need to let us know if you want your poster to be printed full size (24"x36") or half size (18"x24"), and if you'd like it laminated. A member of our team will send you a price quote and delivery/pickup timeline* for approval before we start work on your request. 

All posters are printed on white paper. Full size posters range from $6-$13; half size posters from $3-$6.50. The price is dependent upon the amount of ink on the page and whether or not you request lamination.

*While many orders can be completed in 2-4 business days, please expect longer wait times for large orders and during busier times of the school year.

Questions about creating your own poster? Contact Sara Torabi at sarat@ers.tcoe.org or (559) 651-3031.
