The library is always eager to provide tours of our facilities. All tours are conducted between the hours of 9-5. Adult tours are arranged by the public relations specialist or branch manager.
Class tours usually consist of an overview of the children’s section of the library, a sharing of literature through storytelling or book-talking, and the check out. Class tours do require prior booking to allow for proper staff preparation and scheduling. These tours are arranged either by the children’s or young adult areas depending upon the age of the children.
Class tours fulfill several purposes: 1) for children to become familiar with the library environment and feel comfortable there 2) for sharing literature and information from materials owned in our collection 3) for allowing children the library experience of finding and checking out a book.
