Tour the Library
We welcome the opportunity to educate young people about the library. Group tours and/or story times may be arranged with the Head of Youth Services, Young Adult Librarian, or Head of Adult Services in person, by filling out the form below, or by calling the Library at 810-229-6571 x209. Tours are scheduled during times which are least disruptive to the general operation of the library, and during times which the library can provide dual staffing. The youth department conducts numerous story time sessions per year. During these sessions we are extremely limited in the number of tours we can accommodate.
As part of your tour experience you may elect for us to provide a story time for your children, discuss books available on a given topic, discuss library careers, or with children seven and older we can provide instruction pertaining to our on-line catalog. The agenda for your tour will be discussed when a Youth Supervisor contacts you to confirm your tour date.
All tour groups are required to adhere to the following:
- Please read our Rules of Conduct, and discuss these rules with your group prior to your visit.
- We require one adult for every four children participating in a group tour. We suggest that each adult be assigned to four specific children ahead of time. He/she is subsequently responsible for supervising those children in matters of discipline and observing the rules of the library.
- Children who own library cards must show them to check out library materials. Those who do not have cards should arrange with their parents to obtain one before or after the visit if they wish to check out materials. The Library requires a parent to apply for a minor’s library card.
We look forward to seeing your group in the future.
