Virtual or in-person book talks can be catered to your teaching needs. We can offer a ten-book book talk in 15 minutes complete with complementary bookmarks to allow students to mark their favorites for their next Library visit. Any age, grade, theme or reading level.
Contact the Children's Department to arrange school visits. We can work with you to visit as many or as few classes and grades that you need. From storytimes to book talks, database demonstrations to materials show and tell, book club style discussions to research help, we can cater to your specific classroom needs.
Schedule a visit to discuss how students can participate in the Library's Summer Reading Program over the summer. Our robust reporting systems also allow us to work with schools and teachers to provide reading logs and data. Email email@example.com to schedule a virtual assembly or to coordinate Summer Reading requirements with your school.
Book recommendations by theme, age & grade are available and constantly updated. We are also happy to work with you to find titles for individual needs and interests. You can also request a personal book bundle with hand-selected titles based on a short questionnaire.
