Scheduling a Virtual Class Visit to the Library
While the library is closed due to the current circumstances, we are unable to have students come to the library for class visits. However, we would love to present to your students in your online and virtual classrooms ~ Our librarians can conduct story times, and give instruction on how to use the library catalog, or other online resources during your virtual class visit. We enjoy highlighting the various resources that the library has to offer to students.
How do I schedule a virtual class visit?
Contact the appropriate librarian for the age group of your students to schedule a virtual class visit with the Library. We require a minimum of two weeks advance notice to schedule a class visit.

I'd like the students to get cards, what do I need to do?
We would love for your students to get a library card ~
If your students are age 12 or older, please ask your students to fill out our online library card application. Library staff will then contact them and give them their library card number and PIN to access eBooks and databases.
If your students are 11 or younger, please ask their parents to fill out our online library card application. Library staff will then contact the parents and give them the library card number and PIN for their child.
I'd like to get a library card too, but I don't live in Watsonville...
To apply for a library card, you must be a resident of the state of California. Apply for a library card online, and staff will contact you to confirm your information and give you your card number and PIN.
My students don't know much English yet, are the visits available in Spanish?
Yes! Let whomever you schedule your class visit with know that you would like the presentation in Spanish and/or English.
