Our Youth Librarians are available for class visits! If you would like your class to visit the Library or a Librarian to visit your class, contact the Youth Room for more information or to set up a date and time. We will be happy to design a visit specifically to your needs. Our ongoing outreach programs include the following:
Preschool Visits - Enjoy a special story time here or let us come to you.
First Grade First Card - First graders enjoy a special story time, an orientation on using their library card and the Youth Room resources, and a complimentary beginning reader provided by a generous gift of The Friends of the Library. Come to us or we will be happy to bring the library to you in your classroom.
Historical Tour - Enhance the curriculum by having a special tour highlighting the history of the library and the accomplishments of Martha Baldwin. Call for an appointment.
Fifth Grade Research Skills - Get ready for Middle School by seeing all of the research tools the library has to offer. Visit includes using databases, a tour of reference materials, catalog searching, and help researching pre-assigned topics. Internet safety is also addressed.
Teachers: Please let us know about your assignments so we can help parents and students when they come to the Library. If you alert us, we will post the information about the assignment, gather materials together, and help guide students to appropriate material. Give us a call!
