Visit the Livonia Public Library with Your Class, Scout group, or Organization

Schedule a fun and free class visit with a librarian! The visit can be adapted for your class, but most teachers schedule a basic library orientation. During the orientation students (and parents) will:

  • learn about the many resources the library has to offer
  • take a guided tour of the Children’s Department
  • be given the opportunity to apply for a library card*
  • Learn how to care for library materials
  • have time to browse in the Children’s area

Depending on your needs, we may also be able to provide:

  • a storytime for younger children
  • book talks to help students find age-appropriate books
  • an introduction to our free, online resources and student-friendly databases
  • a Reading Merit Badge counselor for Boy Scouts of America

*Students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent (and be a Livonia resident) to register for a library card.

Special note to teachers:
