Accessing Free Materials

Certain titles in the Library Resources Listings are described as available FREE; a few with availability restricted to Texas educators only due to cost of reproduction.

To request a single copy of one or more free titles from the Library by mail, simply email or call us and ask for the title. Requests for multiple copies of a title for teacher professional development will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

There is no limit to the number of free titles of which Library users may request a single copy; however, keep in mind that an order for numerous free titles may require a longer than usual time to fill.

In order to send you free or loan materials from the library, we will need the following information:

Program Affiliation
Program Address
Program Phone
