In order to provide more customized services, we have placed each New Haven school into a cluster, primarily based on location. Each cluster is assigned to a branch, with one librarian as a primary contact. Click here for a full list.
Bring your class to the library for a fun tour! We offer hour-long programs for pre-school through High School that can be tailored to your needs. Our Young Minds Librarians will present a grade-appropriate library introduction and storytime or other activity. Visits are generally available Monday through Friday from 10:00-11:00 at the Ives Main Branch. Visits can also be scheduled at each of our other branches. During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are able to do class visits virtually through Zoom, Google Classroom, or your preferred platform. Contact your cluster branch or fill out this online form for more information! Please note that we can not guarantee a class visit with less than two weeks’ notice.
Are you looking for books that can supplement your lessons? Let us help you out! First, check out our Kids Reads page to see if some of the bibliographies we have already created fit your needs. These selections will be updated regularly, so be sure to check back! If you can’t find what you are looking for, complete this online form and we can create a custom bibliography for you and your class. Though we will do our best to get any requested bibliographies to you as soon as possible, we can not guarantee a final product with less than two weeks’ notice.
