Districts and schools with a Library Media Services contract have access to the following as part of their annual contract. Assistance for Portal Only or non-contracting campuses is available at an hourly rate. Contact Sara Torabi for more details.

Library Multimedia Network (LMN)
LMN meetings are a bi-monthly gathering of Tulare & Kings County schools’ library personnel with an emphasis on collaboration, communication, and creativity. These meetings are dedicated to school library development, exploring technology, discovering how to best use the ERS Portal resources and how to utilize all ERS Library resources to support the faculty & students at their campus. Attendance is free for contracted school library personnel, non-contracting sites are welcome to participate for a $30/meeting fee. Morning refreshments and lunch are served. For more information, visit the LMN page of the ERS Portal.

On-site Library Consultation
During one 60-90 minute visit our talented design team can show you how to make the most of your established floor plan, or measure your space, discuss your site's needs and create a completely new layout for you! (See samples at right)

If you are looking at purchasing new furniture for your library space, we are happy to share our list of vendors that specialize in sturdy, school appropriate furnishings. 

Library Collection Weeding Assistance
The ERS Library team is also available to help weed outdated & damaged materials from your school library collection. Your path to a current and well-kept library collection starts with filling out this request form. Once we receive the requested information about your library (collection size, average age, etc) and your availability, we'll schedule 2 - 5 members of our team to come out to your site. Visits are typically scheduled between 9am - 3pm. Please be sure that your school library staff know they are a part of this process and are expected to work alongside us throughout. We'll discuss basic weeding criteria and repair/replace guidelines so that their collection maintenance becomes proactive rather than reactive. 

To find out how our school library design team can help your library meet the needs of your students, contact Sara.Torabi@tcoe.org or call (559) 651-3031
