First Steps

  • Contact your local library.
  • Do you want books on a particular subject available? Discuss this with your library contact. Allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
  • Invite adult chaperones. The library recommends 1 adult chaperone per 10 students.

Prepare Your Students

  • Talk with the students about expected behavior.
  • Explain how the library can be used, and the difference between a public and school library if necessary.
  • Discuss what a library card is, what it allows you to do, and the responsibilities associated with it.
  • Remind students to bring their active library cards if you want them to check out books or use computers for research.

At the Library

  • Encourage students to read something new. Here are some suggestions from KidLinks Books & Reading.
  • Encourage students to go to the Information Desk and ask for help during the visit.
