Come visit the Library with your school! Our primary goal for class visits is to develop and nurture children’s lifelong love of reading, literature, and the library. You must make a reservation for a class visit. Schools and day cares can schedule class visits. Contact Bobbee at (979) 209-5615 to schedule a class visit at Mounce Library in Bryan. Ringer Library is currently closed for construction and is expected to reopen by the end of August 2019. Contact Michelle at (979) 209-5600 if you are interested in having a librarian visit your class or if you are interested in visiting Ringer Library after we reopen.
