Outreach instruction for public groups is available to Broward County residents, organizations, and school groups, including all Broward County schools.
The purpose of an outreach instruction session is to provide a librarian-led overview of library services and training how to use specific library resources.
Outreach sessions usually last approximately one hour (60 minutes) and are offered during regular Reference / Public Library Services hours. Longer sessions can be scheduled on a case-by-case basis for larger groups, and librarians can tailor special activities to the group's age or grade-level.
Groups are welcome to visit the library for tours and trainings as a school field trip, or may request that a librarian visit their location to demonstrate the library's online resources.
In order to make the appropriate accommodations, the library requires a minimum of three weeks' notice for all group visit requests .
To schedule a library visit or field trip with services provided by a librarian, please use the appropriate request form or email address below.
For grades 5 and under, please contact email@example.com

Self-Directed Group Visits (10+ people)
If the group is self-directed (i.e. coming to the library to browse for books, work on homework projects, etc.) and does not require any additional services by a librarian, please email email@example.com with the date/time of the planned visit. This will help ensure that there are no scheduling conflicts that day and parking instructions will be provided.
