How long will our visit last?

A whole-building tour runs approximately 45 minutes to an hour. We recommend allowing time for children to browse the collection, and explore the space and technology in the Denny Sanford Childrens Library following a tour.Depending on how long you would like to browse or if you stay for lunch/snack, typical visits last between 90 minutes - 2 hours.

Can my students get library cards prior to their visit?

Students can apply for library cards in advance and receive them the day of their visit. To arrange for library cards for your students, please print out a Library Card Application (EnglishorSpanish)for each of your students.
