The library cooperates with kindergartens, schools and educational institutions. The goal of library visits is to achieve versatile information acquisition skills and to increase reading skills and enthusiasm. Library employees introduce children and young people to the library's collections and information search by visiting schools, recommending books and guiding groups during library service hours.
It is possible to visit the library in the morning even before the start of service time. In the morning, you can borrow from the machine either with the students' own cards or with the community lender's card managed by the teacher/instructor. When borrowing from an ATM, you need a PIN code.
We lend class sets suitable for school classes for elementary and middle school students and high school students. The series are listed in the info box on this page. You can reserve class series books in the online library or ask to borrow them directly from the main library's information service.
For daycare groups, the library has two hiking bags: Fairies and trolls and Domestic animals. They include storybooks and performance props on these topics.
Kindergarten and school groups are welcome to participate in library events. We are hoping for groups to register so that we can prepare for the group's arrival in space selections. The librarian may also send event invitations to classes.
Heili libraries grant community loans to school classes, kindergarten groups and similar entities cooperating with municipalities. Materials are borrowed with a community card, the use of which is the responsibility of the responsible person who signed the card (for example, a teacher). You can get the card for one academic year at a time, i.e. the right to borrow is valid from autumn to spring. After that, the responsible person must request the renewal of the borrowing right; however, there is no need to request a completely new card. Community cards are not kept in the library, but the responsible person makes sure that the card is included when borrowing.
Community card loans follow general lending principles and loan periods, but no late fees are charged. Material left unreturned or damaged will, however, be billed to the entity. We hope that the holder of the community card keeps a record of which student has which volume. This makes it easier to track down unreturned volumes. Every book, disc, magazine and other material in the library has its unique volume number.
We organize the teaching of library use cultural path according to 4th and 7th graders. Please agree on library use lessons with the librarian at least two weeks in advance.
Book advice is telling about books in a way that inspires reading. The librarian of the children's and youth department is responsible for book recommendations for schoolchildren.
In the spring semester, the library will contact all first graders at Imatra. It is also possible for fourth- and seventh-grade teachers to request book advice either as part of the cultural path library use lesson or during a separate advice visit. Please contact us well in advance, at least three weeks in advance. It is desirable to inform about the following things in the request for advice:
- the number of students, whether the majority are girls/boys
- students' wishes
- prohibited topics (if any)
- the teacher's wishes
- only fiction or can there also be information / comics
- available time.
