T.E.A.M. Teach Textbook Check-In and Check-Out


T.E.A.M. Teach Textbook checkout will be taking place on Thursday, August 13th from 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the WHC Lemoore Library. Our textbook checkout book closet is located to the right of the front counter in the library. As a T.E.A.M. Teach member you can check out up to 3 books for the semester. We have about 300 books that we will check out to our students on a first-come, first-served basis and also based on availability of the books we have (e.g.- we have 9 EDUC 1 books, so the first 9 people to come and ask for them will get them!). Please bring your student ID #, class schedule, and the names and editions of the books you want to request with you! If you have books from last spring or from this summer please bring them to Mr. P in the admin building before next Tuesday so we can get them out to your fellow T.E.A.M. Teachers next week. Below are some additional days and times for checkout!


  • Monday, August 17th from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
