Outreach Services

Interested in bringing your group to the Library for a visit? Want the Library to come to your local event? Here you’ll find all of the details about Outreach Bookings with the Library!

Community Group Visits. Get a tour and be introduced to the exciting potential of the Library! We always look forward to  welcoming groups of various sizes, ages, interests, and purposes into our space!
We’d love to share our amazing facilities with your group and we do our best to accommodate the various needs, sizes, ages, and interests of each group. When your group comes to visit the Library, depending on the age of the participants, you could be introduced to the HackLab, engaged in a robotics workshop, enjoy a storytime, or learn about the Library’s diverse electronic and physical resources. Please provide us with a minimum of 4 weeks notice before your desired visit so that we can do our best to accommodate your request.
Due to demand, groups are limited to a maximum of 1 visit in each of the available areas (i.e. community groups may do 1 laser cutting visit, 1 vinyl sticker visit, 1 3D printing visit, etc.).  After completing all of the visit types, participants are encouraged to come to Tinkershops or Programs to further develop skills.
To request a visit for your group, please complete the “Community Group Visits to the Library” section of our Google Form.

Library-To-You. If you’d like the Library to have a presence at your school, community event, camp, or daycare, let us know! We’re always looking for opportunities to get out into the community and share the wonder of the Library with different audiences. Whether it’s an information table or an interactive activity, our staff love to tailor their participation to your event. To best accommodate your request, please provide us with a minimum of 6 weeks notice before your desired visit.

School Group Visits. During the school year, the Library is happy to host our local schools for class visits! 
Every August, the Innisfil ideaLAB & Library launches a variety of STEAM, HackLab, and Storytime Visits to our local schools! Storytime Visits are offered to all Kindergarten classes,  STEAM adventures are possible at the Lakeshore, Cookstown, and Stroud Branches, and opportunities to explore our innovative HackLab are available only at Lakeshore and Cookstown. Make sure you book early, as spaces are limited!

Due to high demand, each class is limited to signing up for 1 STEAM visit and 1 HackLAB visit for a total of 2 visits this school year. Booking a visit is a two-step process:

  1. Reserve a date via BiblioEvents here: If a timeslot you are interested in is already full, feel free to join the waitlist! We will contact you if there is a cancellation.
  2. Select an activity by completing the “Class Visit” section of our Google Form.
