Series-ly Worth It

Meet classic, popular, and new characters found in fiction and non-fiction series! This program includes an introduction to approximately 10 genres, as well as a tour of the Children's Services department. Students will also learn the basics of using Infosoup, our online catalog. Expect this program to last approximately one hour.

This field trip meets the RL3.3, RL3.9, RL3.10 (OEU 1-4) Common Core Standards.

Getting library cards and/or checking out books are not a requirement to visit the library for a field trip.

Library cards may be obtained for your students if desired. This requires that completed library card applications be returned to the library at least 10 days before the visit, accompanied by a class list showing the students’ home addresses. If you choose to check out books, please add 30 minutes to the amount of time you plan to stay at the library.

All library programs are free, and school-age programs are taught by a professional librarian. Classrooms consisting of more than one grade may attend the program of their choice, and the program will be appropriately modified. Please ask us if you would like help combining this field trip with a stop at another Appleton downtown destination.
