Our objective in outreach is to provide greater access to library services by bringing the Library into the community.  All library outreach is offered free of charge.  

BASIC OFFERINGS

Our staff and van are outfitted to offer a wide range of services. Our staff are well-equipped to offer traditional library services, programs to fit a variety of audiences, basic technology training, and of course, reading recommendations. The basic services our librarians offer include the following:  

  • Mobile library check-out and check-in 
  • Distribution of requested materials
  • Issuing library cards to eligible individuals or organizations 
  • Story Time 
  • Technology training to access digital library resources and materials 
  • Homebound services (more information here)

SPECIALTY OFFERINGS

In addition to our basic services, our staff may bring more specialized programs to your venue. Depending on your service populations, we may bring themed kits for children, interactive programs for all ages, booths for conventions and festivals, and more. Specific requests will be considered and fulfilled as we are able. Specialty programs may include the following:  

  • Traveling Librarian presentations (more information here)
  • STEAM activities for all ages 
  • Book club discussions 
  • Themed resource kits
  • Virtual reality experiences (list of apps and information here)

We are happy to work with you to customize an experience that will offer the library services that meet your needs.
