Library tours for elementary school children

We give tours of the library to elementary school children at three stages of their primary education: the first grade, the third grade and the sixth grade.

At the first grade level (children aged 4) we give first graders a playful introduction to the library, working on book promotion by letting them experience the wonders of books and how fun reading is. Because it really is!

When they reach the third grade (children aged 6) their visit to the library consists primarily of the following activities: learning to read, being busy with letters and learning about the different types of books / media that exist. This all takes place with the eventual objective of making the visiting children excited about books so they can better enjoy children’s books and poems.

During the tour for sixth graders (children aged 9) we show them the different types of books we have, teach them how to search for books in the library and recognize the genre or subject of a book. Aside from prompting their interest in reading, the aim of this tour is to also get them acquainted with our extensive variety of books and other reading and viewing material.

We also aim to develop their information skills during this tour, helping them develop their ability to identify, find, evaluate and manage the information they need. This skill will be of vital importance throughout their academic career. In addition to this we also give them a chance to become a member of the library and choose a book to go home with.
