Visit the Library
If your class, club, homeschool group, or other school group would like to visit the Glen Ellyn Public Library, staff can arrange for a tour, an introduction to library resources, a book discussion, a presentation on another topic, or any combination of the above. The library would also be delighted to host your life skills classes, and prepare a program that will meet the needs of your students and introduce them to the library’s services.
Because staff schedules fill up fast, the more notice of a visit you give, the better prepared staff will be to give your group the time and care it needs.
Joshua ES O’Shea, Young Adult Librarian, loves visiting high schools and homeschool groups. Past outreach visits have included doing stories and activities with classes in the special education department; presenting to clubs in schools on topics as varied as blogging, recycling media materials, and book recommendations; and partnering with school libraries for programs and events.
