The SDG Library's pop-up booths are designed to go beyond traditional library set-ups by bringing our enthusiasm and knowledge directly to community events. From fair to yardsale visits, our staff provides a gateway to the vast array of resources, programs, and services we offer.
Interested in knowing more about the library? Our staff would love to chat with you at our pop-ups and answer your questions. Keep an eye on our events calendar to find out when the next pop-up booth will be in your area!
Welcome to SDG Library, where learning comes alive through immersive class visits. We are delighted to host educators and their classes at our libraries for sessions full of fun and learning. Contact the library location you would like to visit for more information!
Let us show your students what the library has to offer- program information, homework help resources, library cards and more! All visits can include a fun, literacy-based activity that will appeal to each grade level.
If you can't come to the library, we can come to you. Library staff can make arrangements for monthly book deliveries of age appropriate reading materials. Titles can include fiction and non-fiction titles that support general reading interests and/or units of study.
Give your class time to browse, read and borrow books from the library. Class-specific displays may be requested in advance.
Projects: Getting started
Arrange a visit that fits any unit of study. Library staff can set aside materials and students can learn how to use our print and electronic resources.
JK to Grade 3
Add some more fun to your unit of study with a storytime visit to the library. Tell us your theme and we'll excite your students with age-appropriate stories and activities. We will show them around the library and time can be left to browse and borrow items.
Exploring books and authors
Grades 4 to 8
Encourage a love of reading for the entire class. We will highlight new, popular and well-loved books or authors that appeal to both advanced and reluctant readers. Library staff can help to choose age-appropriate books and magazines that your students will love to read.
