Library Tours can be tailored to
Storytime Tours we can read and tell stories on a topic of
your choosing, such as Rainforests or Emotions. Then we can
take your class on a shorter version of any of the following
Library Instruction Tours we can help your students get the
most out of their time at the Library by showing them how to
use the Library's resources and then sending them on a
grade-level-appropriate information scavenger hunt.
Library Works Tour we can show your students how their
Library functions from the purchasing of materials to
Technical Services to Circulation to the Administrative
In the Children’s Room, we have set aside Thursdays for
school tours. It is possible, however, to book other days of
the week if necessary. Tours of the Adult department may be
scheduled any day of the week.
Each tour takes between 30 and 45 minutes. If the Children’s
Room and the Adult Department need to coordinate efforts for
a Library Instruction Tour, the tour may be slightly longer.
We prefer to have no more than 30 students in a tour group.
We can make accommodations for up to 60 by conducting two
simultaneous tours. We will need more advance notice to
accommodate double-sized groups.
The Library can provide one tour a week. Please us
well in advance to schedule a tour since available slots
fill up quickly.
