Branch Library Tours
All 15 JCLS branches offer tours throughout the year. If you would like to schedule a tour of the library for your group, please call or e-mail at least two weeks in advance. Tours can be arranged with any of the following emphases:
Browsing and check-out
Tours for Children’s Groups and Elementary Schools
Teachers: to guarantee library card applications in time for tours, please submit complete paperwork at least two weeks ahead of visit. One library card can be used at all fifteen branches of the library system. If children already have a Jackson County Library card, they will not be issued another one and need to bring their library card on the day of the visit.
Tours for Teens
Teen Tours focus on library resources for teens at any of Jackson County’s 15 library branches.
Tours for Adults
Adult tours focus on library resources and how to use them. Tours are also offered for groups interested in our genealogy, local history, and other special collections.
