The Wilson Branch will open at 12 PM on February 8th, 2023. All other locations will be open as usual.

Cluster List

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.  Access the full cluster list.

Class Visits

Teen center

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.

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.

Bibliographies

Are you looking for books that can supplement your lessons?  Let us help you out! 

First, check out our Teen 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.
