The Oshawa Public Libraries offers outreach programmes to schools, including story times, book talks, theme presentations, and more to support your focus on literacy and learning.

Is your school having a Family Reading Night or other literacy activity? Is your Mum & Tot circle having a special event? We will be happy to join you with books and stories, booklists, and paper game takeaways for any age children. Invite a librarian to your classroom to-day!

Library Books in Your Classroom


Teachers and school librarians are invited to check out a deposit of books for the classroom or daycare centre. Picture books, novel sets, non-fiction to enrich your students’ investigation of a topic are all available. Two weeks notice is required if you wish staff to put together materials on a specific theme or subject.
