Interested in having a librarian visit your school or classroom? Please EMAIL US or call (480) 488-2286 to schedule a visit with a librarian. We can visit with students for a classroom visit, provide library cards to each student, and either read a story (K-3) or share exciting new books available for checkout (grades 3-4+).
For Your Students
ASSIGNMENT ALERTS: If you have an upcoming assignment, please EMAIL the Youth Librarian with information about the types of materials your students will need for upcoming projects. We will pull relevant materials onto a cart for your class and allow your students to make copies for free, and you can let them know materials for their projects will be available at our library.
We provide volunteer and service opportunities for students ages 13 +.
Please visit our Volunteer Page to learn more.
