Middle and High School Outreach Services

The Chattahoochee Valley Libraries is committed to being your partner-in-education. Whether in your buildings or ours, staff strive to make connections with students that turn them into lifelong learners.

 We would love to visit your classrooms or media center! Below is a list of programs staff can bring to you. If you are interested in inviting staff out, please contact Megan Aarant Jackson, Teen Services Coordinator at maarant@cvlga.org or Lindsey Sheppard at lsheppard@cvlga.org to schedule. Please allow 2 weeks’ notice of your need to allow enough time to schedule staff.  


Outreach Services

Lunch with a Librarian
We will be happy to set up an outreach table in the cafeteria during lunch. We will bring our button maker, a STEAM kit, and information about our programs and services. We’ll show your students how to get sign up for their own library card. 

Book Talks

Library staff will visit classes and share their interests and insights on literature.  Teachers may request a focus on specific genre, title(s), or an overarching theme; they may also leave the book selection to our staff. These sessions last approximately 15-30 minutes.  


Research Bootcamp
We’re experts on finding things! Let our staff visit your classroom or media center to help teach your students the secrets of effective research. We’ll focus on finding both print and internet sources, including a demonstration of Galileo’s new Bento Box feature.


STEAM-powered Curriculum Supplementation
Contact us to discuss how we can incorporate our technology and STEAM kits to supplement your class lessons. 


Special Event Participation * 
Hosting an open house, parent-teacher night, STEAM night, or something similar? We’re happy to attend and talk to students and/or their families about the Library’s services. 

 *For staff scheduling please allow 2 weeks’ notice.
