Library Tours

Discover a Whole Lot of Library

SGPL is so much more than books and buildings. So get to know us even better with a tour. Library tours are free, available for any group or organization, and right for everyone, of any age. Find out what goes on behind the scenes. Where do the books go once you put them in the bookdrop? Do you have a question you've been dying to ask, or our Summer Reading Club?

From public workstations and to expert knowledge, amazing programs and epic special events, our staff are sources of something incredible for everyone.
