Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When we first introduced the Librarians Teach Curriculum Subscription, we got a lot of questions, and maybe you have some too.
Here are some of the most common questions we’ve heard:
What is included in a Curriculum Subscription?
As a Curriculum Pro Annual subscriber, you will get $200 in store credit each year to download your choice of curriculum products. Your store credit is good for up to 15 months after your purchase or renewal date. If you need more time to use your store credit, just contact us.
“Founding” Curriculum Pro Annual subscribers (those who subscribed in 2020-2021) receive $180 in store credit each year at their grandfathered subscription price. That store credit is also good for up to 15 months after the purchase or renewal date. If you need more time to use your store credit, reach out us for an extension.
As a Curriculum Club Monthly subscriber (which is no longer available), you will receive $15 in store credit per month to spend on your choice of curriculum products. Remaining store credit is rolled over from month to month, and it never expires.
How can I get a whole year of library lessons from my Curriculum Subscription?
Classroom teachers often get a teacher’s manual or a scope and sequence to tell them what to teach and in what order. If you would like the same convenience through your Curriculum Subscription, you can use all $180 of your annual Curriculum Store Credit to purchase one of our curriculum bundles.
The Year 1 Library Lessons Bundle provides enough lessons for 36 weeks of library lessons for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. You will be teaching the same lesson to kindergarten & 1st grade classes, to 2nd & 3rd grade classes, and to 4th & 5th grade classes. There is also a “library centers” rotation at the end of the year. Click here for more information about how the Year 1 Bundle works with your annual Curriculum Pro Subscription as an all-in-one curriculum solution.
The Year 2 Library Lessons Bundle is now available so that you’ll have new and different lessons for 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade the following year. You can also decide to use your store credit on your choice of curriculum products instead.

Does my curriculum store credit expire?
It depends on which Curriculum Subscription you choose.
Curriculum Pro Annual Subscriptions include store credit that expires 15 months after your purchase or renewal date. If you need more time to use your store credit, just contact us.
Curriculum Club Monthly Subscriptions (which are no longer available) include $15 in store credit each month, and it never expires. Your store credit is rolled over from month to month to use at any time.
How much does a Curriculum Subscription cost?
We strive to keep our subscription affordable while offering excellent value for your investment. See our Pricing section for current subscription prices and payment options.
Do my curriculum product downloads expire?
No, once you download a curriculum product, you have a perpetual, one-user license. You can use that product for all of the classes you teach at any given time.
Is there a community for Librarians Teach customers?
Yes! We’d love for you to join our Librarian Perks Facebook group. We’ve got video interviews with school library vendors, prize giveaways, and special events. Learn how to join the group here.
Will the Curriculum Subscription rates increase over time?
Although we are committed to keeping the Curriculum Pro Subscription affordable, we do expect rates to increase, as each month we will be adding new curriculum products.
However, as long as you remain an active subscriber, with no lapse, your rate will never increase. Your subscription terms remain the same unless you cancel.
Can Librarians Teach resources be used with remote/online/distance learning?
Yes! Check our Digital & Online Learning category for library lessons designed specifically to be delivered online. Many of our other lessons can be adapted to online learning as well.
What happens if I cancel my Curriculum Subscription?
While we strive to meet the needs of all of our customers, you may decide that a Curriculum Subscription isn’t right for you. You can cancel your subscription at any time.
If you cancel your Curriculum Subscription, you will lose your current discount, so if you change your mind, you’ll have to subscribe at the rate for new customers.
Your Librarians Teach account also remains active so you can access your previous purchases. You can continue making purchases from the Curriculum Shop, even if you don’t have a subscription.
e.g. You subscribed to the Curriculum Pro Annual Subscription in June 2021 at $150/year to get $180 store credit each year. You cancelled in May 2022.
You can still login to Curriculum Shop to use up your unexpired store credit and purchase more curriculum products with a debit or credit card.
If you want to subscribe again, you would need to purchase the Curriculum Pro Annual Subscription at the current price of $185/year to get $200 store credit each year.
When will the Curriculum Pro Annual Subscription be available again?
The Curriculum Pro Subscription will open again in 2023.
Your subscription begins immediately after payment processing.
— Purchase orders are accepted too.
All Curriculum Subscriptions automatically renew until you cancel. Find out more information HERE.
Who started Librarians Teach?
Librarians Teach was founded by Collette Jay and Cari White, two teacher-librarians who wanted school librarians to have access to reasonably priced, standards-based, engaging curriculum. Learn more on our About Us page.
