Tours of the Library are offered to any individual or group. Information and activities are tailored to the age and interests of the group.
Scheduling a Tour
Please select a tour that is of interest to your group, and schedule a time with the library tour coordinator. All tours must be scheduled in advance. The Library is a busy place, and we want to be sure there is sufficient space and assistance available for everyone to work and study. We also expect that the adults in the group maintain control of the tour participants at all times while visiting the Library.

Grade School Field Trip
Grade school field trips feature storytime and/or a movie. This is a general tour of the areas of interest to the specific age group. Special attention is given to what the library has to offer, how to get a library card, and where materials are found. We suggest you bring adult helpers with you to assist your students in finding their information. The adult helpers should understand what will be expected of them and how they can best help the students.
