Second Grade Library Tour–Intro to the Library

So the second graders from the local school are once more coming to visit, yay! This time the teacher has not given me a topic assignment, we will start with “intro to the library.” I have about a half hour, and just me, 50 students and two teachers. So far the plan is evolving, and since I get to do this program twice, it may change after the first run through.

After introductions, we’ll discuss the library and who has been here and how one can get a library card.

Next we’ll read Miss Brooks Loves Brooks! (And I Don’t), Miss Brooks Loves Books! (And I Don't) which is nice because it really shows how librarians can not just help people find the specific book they want, but also a book they may not know exists or that they would want.

We’ll talk about what kinds of books they like and what kinds of things they can find in our library. I’ve pulled a bunch of materials of different kinds and I want to show them to the kids. I’ll go over stories versus informational, and where the books are located.

After talking about the fun materials we have here, I’ll talk a little bit about our programs and encourage them to come to the star party we’re having next week.

I’ll finish with reading Interrupting ChickenInterrupting Chicken and inviting them to come to the library with their parents/guardians to get a library card!
