Class Visits and Tours

The Youth & Teen Services department offers library instruction, tours, booktalks, and opportunities for individual and group research. Please remind your students to bring their library cards for their visit so that they can check out materials and access our online resources during their visit. 

Please email youthservices@lincolnwoodlibrary.org to set up a visit.

  • Collaboration with your school librarian to provide additional books
  • Classroom visits

School Library Cards

Lincolnwood Library provides designated library cards to Lincolnwood schools via the school librarians, who place all requests for materials with the Youth & Teen Services Department. Teachers must go through their school librarian to check out materials on these accounts. See more information about loan lengths and library cards.
