Information for schools and teachers

Class visits to a library are free and available throughout the school year. We offer several programmes, with each session lasting 60 minutes.   

Our librarians can also visit schools to give a brief presentation on what public libraries have to offer and promote reading programmes, such as the Summer Reading Challenge. 

Introduction to your library 

This session aims to introduce children to the library service and the range of services available with their free membership. 

Reading for pleasure 

An opportunity to talk and learn about new books. Pupils will be encouraged to read for pleasure and discover a range of titles suitable for all levels and interests. 

Information skills 

A brief introduction to the Dewey Decimal Classification system, enabling pupils to search and locate materials for study and recreation.

For more information and to book a school visit, contact your local library or email katy.waters@bcpcouncil.gov.uk and louise.jones2@bcpcouncil.gov.uk (cc both).
