School Tours

Children visit the library

The Lodi Public Library is dedicated and committed to assisting teachers and their students with their library needs. To that end, we encourage teachers to arrange class field trips to the library to help instill in children a lifelong love of reading and learning.

Library Cards For Class Visits

All class visitors may receive new library cards. We encourage teachers to come to the library and pick up children’s library card applications for their classes. The applications must be filled out completely and signed by parents. 

Once the applications are completed, the teacher may turn them back into the library. We request that the applications be turned in at least 7 to 10 days prior to the field trip so that they can be processed before the visit; we cannot guarantee library cards after the 7 to 10 day window.
