Resources for teachers

The library partners with Mississauga schools to enhance the reading, research and curriculum needs of teachers and students from kindergarten to grade 12. Teachers can book a class visit or a free tour at any library location. You can also request that library staff visit your school, or find one of our reading programs for your class.

Library tours

Book a tour of your local library location for your class. If your public school is not within walking distance, you may qualify for the free bus service courtesy of Friends of the Library. Check the library school partner list to find the library closest to your school.

Class visits and events

Library staff can visit your class, or attend special events at your school to promote literacy. To plan a class visit, check the library school partner list to find the library closest to your school.

Forest of Reading Program

Each year the Library supports the Ontario Library Association’s Forest of Reading Awards Program. You can borrow multiple copies of the nominated books from your local library. Print and electronic copies of each nominated title are available for borrowing.

Grade 4 Read to Succeed

Students are encouraged to read for pleasure throughout the year by visiting the library and joining the Grade 4 Read to Succeed Program. The goal of this program is to ignite the joy of reading and to motivate students to visit the library on a regular basis. At the end of each school year, we celebrate classes with the highest participation rates across Mississauga at a special (invitation only) event!

To book a Grade 4 Read to Succeed introductory visit for your class, please contact the library nearest you.



TD Summer Reading Club

The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, interests and abilities. The club helps kids explore the fun of reading and celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators and stories.

Participating in reading programs can help kids improve or maintain their reading levels during the summer. Fostering a love of reading helps improve word recognition, vocabulary and reading comprehension.
