Outreach services
Reading Roadshow
Taking the library to you! Our Reading Roadshow is a collection of books for all ages to check out. The visit is about an hour long and happens monthly. We set up a table with the books and check them in and out at each visit, as well as answer any reference questions or assist with digital resources.
Library Info and Card Sign-Up
A table with brochures of all of our services and calendars of our programs. We can assist people with the management of their library account, whether it’s setting up a new one or renewing an expired one.
Storytime
A youth services librarian can provide a Storytime program to your students. It can be themed according to the season or, with enough time, your event or current subject in class.
Craft Program
We can bring a craft that goes with the theme of the event or the season. Great for festivals or events where families and their kids will be staying for longer periods of time.
Youth Services Presentation
Youth Services Presentation (Teachers/Parents)- A presentation to inform parents and teachers about all of the resources available to them through the library. We’ll go through all the supplemental resources that can assist their students with their education.

Youth Services Presentation (Teen)- A presentation that introduces teens to the library and shows them how to access our eResources. We’ll talk to them about our Youth Advisory Council, Summer Volunteer Program, and all the cool programs we host throughout the year.
General Library Presentation
A general overview of the library and all of our services. We’ll walk through how to get a library card and how to explore our website.
Local History Presentation
“A Stroll Down Memory Lane” -- PowerPoint presentation -- Participants will wander down the paths of Hall County’s rich history. Historic photographs will help us focus on snapshots in time as we weave a rich tapestry of brightly colored thread showing Georgia’s gold rush, street cars, deadly tornadoes, and the building of Lake Lanier.
Genealogy Presentation
“Genealogy Tips & Tricks” – PowerPoint presentation -- Many researchers just starting out in genealogy don’t know where to begin. While those who have been doing genealogy research for years will often run into brick walls along the way. During this program, we will talk about some basic tools which will aid in growing a strong family tree. Plus, we will talk about ways of getting a different perspective or records you have not thought about using before.
Digital Resources Presentation/Demonstration
An overview of all of our eResources including Hoopla and Tutor.com, as well as a demonstration on how to access and use them.
Book Club
