School visit - Queens' Old Library

School visit

Queens' Old Library are happy to host visiting school groups of all ages. We have a successful record of engaging primary school children with fun and educational activities in the library and around College that give young students a sense of the historical importance of Queens' and its collections. Previous visits have included the use of discovery lists and drawing activities specially tailored to make the content of our Old Library exhibitions understandable and exciting for youngsters.


Queens' Old Library also welcomes visits from secondary school groups. We have previously hosted GCSE and A level students to great success, providing stimulating talks on the history of the library and its importance of relevance to history and literature curriculums.

We encourage schools to contact us to express their interest in a visit or to discuss any requirements at library@queens.cam.ac.uk. You will find below an example of the various topics we discuss during the visits.

The gallery below contains feedback from some of our satisfied regulars from Mayfield Primary School.
