Booktalk and reading diplomas
Elementary school teacher: The library offers third-graders booktalk, that is, introductions to stories by a booktalker. The books introduced are included in the list of books to be read for a reading diploma, which means that the booktalk session can also motivate students to take the reading diploma.
Junior high school teacher: Do you know what KuMuKi means? Bring your class to one of these KuMuKi (picture-music-book) booktalk sessions and find out!
High schools and upper secondary education institutions
Library employees serve teachers and students at the college libraries of Tikkurila and Sotunki high schools.
Classes are welcome to participate in different library-arranged events, exhibitions, and fairytale- and story hours. Teacher, bring your class to the library on an experience tour! The libraries will also separately inform schools of forthcoming events. In addition, we welcome classes to arrange their own events on library premises!
If you want to book a group visit, contact your local library: Designated libraries and schools.
In other pedagogic issues, contact the pedagogics unit.
