School visits

What we offer

You can choose from workshops on a range of topics – including information skills, poetry and reading for pleasure.

The workshops:

  • support class topics and project work
  • help children practice key skills in speaking and listening, information research and evaluating texts

Each class visit lasts about an hour and if children bring their library cards they can also borrow books during the visit. Some classes visit the library regularly so that children can borrow and exchange their books.

Our Welcome Pack contains details of the topics available, what's involved in a class visit, and notes for teachers and adult helpers, including risk assessment guidelines.
