Video tutorials for Educator Library Cards

Youth services staff members have been curating a Wakelet profile since the beginning of the pandemic that we hope that all at-home learners will find useful. You can find our learning resource collections, as well as a backlog of our virtual programs and activities to try. Explore at wakelet.com/@YouthservicesAHML

Schedule a Visit
Visits to the library are tailored to your needs. You can jump-start a research project or genre study with expert guidance from our staff, take a tour of our space, or just enjoy a storytime, puppet show, and time to play.
Or let library staff bring all the resources of the library to you! We can provide book talks, storytimes, storytelling, database demonstrations and much more. You can also request a visit from the bookmobile, schedule permitting. Library staff are also available for parent/teacher nights, literacy nights, STEM nights and other special events.
