What better way to introduce young children to the Library than to bring them in for a tour! The library can be a fun and educational place to visit, and we welcome child care centers, preschools, clubs, and classrooms to bring groups of children to the library.
The librarians at the Keene Public Library are happy to include a storytime, orientation, computer training session or booktalks in a scheduled tour to the library. If you are interested in visiting the library with a group, we suggest that you call and schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance. All groups must be properly chaperoned and supervised.
With enough notice, teachers from Keene schools can arrange to distribute free cards to students during the visit. To do this, teachers will have to send home Keene Public Library card applications to their students. The complete and signed applications will need to be turned into the library one week before the class visit.
Prepare your class for a library visit by reading one or two of these suggested books about libraries and reading.
