Class Visits & Outreach
We are always eager to renew and build upon our relationships with local schools!
We believe it is important that we develop these relationships to be able to support the needs of children in their school activities and their recreational reading.
In support of this initiative, we offer virtual class visits:
Virtual Tech/Stem Visit – 3D printing, Cricut demos, coding, science experiments and more!
We offer a variety of different Stem-based programs such as Tinkercad tutorials, how to build your very own digital escape room, Scratch tutorials, science experiments and more! Let us know what tech you would like us to demo/share with your students when booking your time with us.
Summer 2022 Children and Teen Programming Preview (offered only in June 2022)
Join the CPL Youth Services Team as they introduce the 2022 Summer Reading Club and let you know about the fun games and activities they have planned for this summer!
We want to help your students stay on track for learning by participating in exciting and educational programming. Book a class visit today and find out how the library can help your students with science, technology, art, engineering and math literacy this summer!
Virtual Library Orientation and Tours
‘Tour’ the library’s online databases/resources, collections and more! Where possible, we’ll even take you on a virtual tour of our library spaces!
After a virtual visit/orientation, students will know how to: apply for a library card, search and navigate all the free and amazing online/digital resources CPL has to offer, be familiar with library borrowing rules and guidelines, use our catalogue to search for material suitable and relevant for your students, contact librarians, and access a variety of virtual programs.
Virtual Story Time – music, craft or activity and more!
Join us for a fun and interactive story time complete with favourite songs, stories, and rhymes. Story times help support a lifelong love of reading through language and social development. Supplemental crafts may be incorporated into these programs.
Virtual Welcome to Kindergarten or Start with a Smile Program
Join us for a special story time featuring books, songs and rhymes to help make their first day at school, whether it be in-person or virtual, worry-free. After the story time we can offer exploratory activities focusing on kindergarten skills such as cutting, name-writing, recognizing shapes, colors, letters and numbers and more!
We look forward to working with your school!
Note: We now have limited opportunities for small, in-person visits at select branches. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
If for any reason your visit needs to be canceled, please do so within 24 hours of the scheduled visit. Due to the popular nature of our virtual class visit program, advance notice of cancellation is helpful so we can accommodate as many requests as possible.
