What better way to introduce young children to the Library than to bring them in for a tour! The library can be a fun and educational place to visit, and we welcome child care centers, preschools, clubs, and classrooms to bring groups of children to the library.
The librarians at the Keene Public Library are happy to include a storytime, orientation, computer training session, or booktalks in a scheduled tour of the library. If you are interested in visiting the library with a group, we suggest you call and schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance. All groups must be adequately chaperoned and supervised.
With enough notice, teachers from Keene schools can arrange to distribute free cards to students during the visit. Teachers will have to send home Keene Public Library card applications to their students to do this. The complete and signed applications will need to be turned into the library one week before the class visit.
If your classroom cannot visit the library because of transportation costs, please call us at 603-352-0157. We might be able to help you find transportation funds.
Have you considered the City Express to get a small group to the library? The City Express can pick up your group at any of the 16 designated City Express stops identified by the new Info-Post signs along the route. Call the City Express Dispatch Office (603-352-8494), and they can help you determine the best location for your pickup.
