Your storytime program may feature puppets, props, music, and, of course, great books. A tour of the Youth Services Department will follow.
Students will tour the Library with a special emphasis on the Youth Services Department. Tours may be combined with book talks or Storytimes.
We offer one traveling story time program during the school year for each class.
During the school year, a librarian from Youth Services is available to come to your school and book talk some of our favorite books or books in a theme you specify.
To schedule a book talk or story time, contact the Youth Services Department.
The Glenview Library annually sponsors a tournament in January and February for fourth and fifth graders to test their knowledge of books. Teams of four read from a selected list and try to identify books from a series of questions. All participants receive a certificate and are invited to a party at the end of the season. Informational school visits begin in October and registration runs through November. Ask your school librarian for more information.
The Glenview Public Library would like to help students and teachers with their assignment needs. Teachers can use this to alert library staff about upcoming assignments and projects.
The Library currently has Group Discussion Sets (10 paperback copies) of over 30 popular titles. Schools may check out entire sets for five weeks on a school library card.
We currently house textbooks from OLPH, District 34, and St. Catherine Laboure for use in the Library. These non-circulating books are a great resource for students and patrons. If your school is interested in donating current textbooks, please contact the School Services Coordinator.
Please contact the Youth Services Department.
