Children's Librarians

Children’s librarians can present storytimes and other special programs. Please let us know if you would like a storytime, library orientation, book talk, or help on a specific topic. You can also invite us to school events and parents' meetings to talk about library service, highlight books children enjoy, and how to encourage reading in the home.

Teen Librarians

Teen librarians are excited to meet your class. We can demonstrate online resources, talk about books, tell what the library is doing right now, or talk about information-related topics like "fake news." You can also invite us to events or staff meetings to talk about how we are supporting schools, teachers, and students.

Request a Class Visit

We are currently doing class visits virtually and in-person

We prioritize requests based on:

  • the order we receive them
  • staff capacity
  • your request

 

Please allow two weeks for a response. A library staff member will contact you to confirm the date, time, and details of your visit.

We may prioritize visits to under-resourced schools

We may provide pre-recorded videos developed by our librarians if a visit isn't possible.

We will do our best to accommodate as many groups or events as we can!
