Library visits for groups and schools

School visits

All school classes are invited to visit their local library. Each visit can be made to suit a school’s special requirements.

Your visit will include:

  • an introduction to the library and its services
  • finding stories
  • finding non-fiction and information books
  • time to explore and choose books to borrow

Each term we ask a different year group to visit. A risk assessment is available on request.

Term Year group
Autumn term Year 5, and also reception classes for Booktime
Spring term Year 3
Summer term Years 1 and 2

We will send a letter to confirm your booking and a library joining form, which can be copied and given to every child. We help reading skills by getting every child to become a library member and encouraging them to read a wide range of books.
