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, Teen Services Coordinator at 706-243-2810 to schedule. Please allow 2 weeks’ notice of your need to allow enough time to schedule staff.
Lunch with a Librarian
Library staff will set up an outreach table in the cafeteria during lunch. We will bring our button maker, a STEAM kit, and information about our programs, services, and how to get sign up for a library card.
Library staff will come to classes and give book talks to students to entice them to read. Teachers may request a focus on specific genre, titles, overarching theme, or leave book selection to the determination of library staff. Book talks sessions will last approximately 15-30 minutes.
Library staff will visit classrooms or the media center and provide instruction on how to do research using the public library’s physical and online resources.
