Darien Library works with local educators to support the school curriculum by providing print and online materials for homework help and to continue to foster a love of reading in children. The Children's Librarians are always happy to visit classes or to host visitors and can tailor the stories and activities to fit different topics.
Elementary and Middle Schools
Each year, the Children's Librarians visit Darien school libraries and classrooms where we share exciting new books for the summer and Summer Reading Club information with the students and teachers. Every May and June, we visit all of Darien's elementary schools, plus Middlesex Middle School and Pear Tree Point School.
Nursery and Preschools
We love our nursery and preschools, too! The Librarians are available to visit preschool and nursery classes throughout the year. Students are treated to a fun session of reading aloud, rhymes, and more. Librarians read books of their choice or choose titles based on a theme requested by teachers. A typical visit is tailored to the students' age level and are approximately 30 minutes long. If you prefer to come to Darien Library, visiting the public library is a great way to supplement your curriculum and expose your students to all the services available in public libraries.
