School Tours

Memorial Library welcomes visits by school classes.

Guidelines

  • Classroom teachers should collaborate with their school media specialist to ensure that the students have used their own library's resources prior to visiting Memorial Library.
  • Requests for classes from grades 9 through 12 are accepted. We encourage groups from grades 8 and lower to use their local public library, where more age-appropriate resources are available.
  • Group visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
  • Group visits of more than eight students at a time are typically scheduled when Berry's classes are not in session. Please call ahead for available dates each semester.
  • Student groups of eight or less are also encouraged to schedule visits during our breaks, but may be accommodated at other times as our schedule permits.
  • Groups must be properly chaperoned and supervised; we suggest one adult for every 10 students.
  • The visiting school agrees to bear ultimate financial responsibility for any damage, theft or loss of college library resources caused by a school student.
  • A college librarian will be happy to provide a brief demonstration of the online catalog and other key resources, as well as a short walking tour of the facility to point out key locations for journal holdings, books, etc.
