Types of Visits

Library Orientation (All Grades)
Let us show your students what the library has to offer - program information, homework help, library cards and more! All visits can include a fun, literacy-based activity that will appeal to each grade level.

Projects: Getting Started (All Grades)
Arrange a visit that fits any unit of study. Your librarian can set aside materials and students can learn how to use our print and electronic sources. In addition, check out our special curriculum-based visits for selected units of study (on reverse).

Reading Fun (Grades JK-Grade 3)
Add some more fun to your unit of study with a storytime visit to your library. Tell us your theme and we’ll excite your students with age-appropriate stories and crafts. We will show them around the library and time can be left to browse and borrow items.  

Exploring Books and Authors (Grades 4-8)
Encourage a love of reading for the entire class. We will highlight new, popular and well-loved books or authors that appeal to both advanced and reluctant readers. Your librarian can help to choose age-appropriate books and magazines that your students will love to read.

Your Virtual Library (Grades 4-8)
Book a fun and interactive visit for your class to learn about all the great things they can do through the Library’s website. There is something for everyone! Students will learn how to use our catalogue to find materials and place holds, to discover recommended websites, to search for magazine and newspaper articles and to post comments on books they have read.
