Library Outreach & Tours

Our youth services staff visits all of the preschools and childcare centers in Pulaski County at least once per month for story time. We also make a monthly delivery of books to some of the local after school programs and to the Pulaski Community Youth Center. In addition, we are able to visit local schools upon request to share information about our library system and promote a love of reading among children of all ages. We are also available to give library tours for school field trips, as well as other groups and organizations. Please contact us at (540) 994-2458 or jcoalson@pclibs.org to schedule a school visit or library tour!
