Group and School Visits

Visit the library with your students! Visits for grades 6-12 generally consist of a tour and a brief overview of library programs and volunteer opportunities, but we can work with you to create an agenda that best fits the needs of your class. The Teen staff is also available to visit your group or school at your Cherry Hill location, depending upon scheduling availability.

In the past we have developed these presentations with teachers and media specialists:
- Book Talks (Chat’n Chew)
- Mini Maker Faire
- Library Card Drive
- Online Databases and Resources Presentation 

Contact the Youth Services Department at 856-903-1229 or e-mail mbrinn@chplnj.org to schedule a visit or outreach event. Please allow 4-6 weeks lead time.
