Some guidelines to follow:

  • Tours are conducted on Tuesdays, September through May.
  • Visits may begin as early as 9:00 a.m. but should end no later than 11:00 a.m.
  • We recommend a 5:1 ratio of children to adults and only 2 classes per tour.

Class Tours Available

  • Preschool, Kindergarten and First Grade Tours will consist of a brief introduction to what is found in the Children's Library, how the library works, a short tour, and a story time.
  • Grades 2-3 Tour will consist of an introduction to the library, how to care for your books, your responsibilities of having a library card, and a story time.
