We are preparing the building to reopen to the public for a few days a week starting mid- to late-September. The library has new capacity limits so that we can maintain social distancing, and wearing masks or face coverings will be required. Virtual programming, curbside pick-up, and outside services will continue. Stay tuned for details!

School and Daycare Visits

Our staff is happy to visit your school or daycare and do a storytime designed to enhance the lessons in your classroom. A typical visit:

               -lasts about an hour total (15-20 minutes per classroom)

               -is designed for groups of anywhere from 10-30 children

               -can be targeted for babies/toddlers, preschool, or elementary aged students

               -includes stories, songs, and rhymes

     -will be centered around a theme, either chosen by the librarian or designed to supplement your school’s curriculum. Example themes include:

               Animals

               Transportation

               Visiting the library

               Community Helpers

               A Universe of Stories (Library Summer Reading theme 2019)

We ask that you please get in touch at least 2 weeks ahead of when you would like a visit so that we can adequately prepare. Please email cathy@merrimacklibrary.org or jenny@merrimacklibrary.org to begin the planning process.
