Branch Library Tours

Branches are able to offer a variety of tours. General introductions to library services for all ages can also be arranged, including how to find library materials using our online catalogue and online magazine and newspaper articles using our subscription databases services. Please check the branch information page of the branch you are interested in to see what is available and contact the branch to make a request.

Please note: If you are bringing a large group to the Library for a tour or class visit and they require library cards, please drop off the application forms several days in advance to give us time to process them before your visit.
