Fire Safety Education in Libraries

This guide is designed to help libraries and fire departments come together to create fire safety outreach programming in the local library.

Collection Development: Children's Department

As librarians we understand the importance of collection development. Along with fire safety programming, collecting fire safety materials — whether those are books, audio/video materials, or others — can help keep the fire safety message going after the program ends. Though fire safety is important for everyone, these books are aimed at children and at storytime presentations. The Illinois Fire Service Institute Library carries many books and other materials about fire safety which are available for loan to individuals, to Illinois public libraries, and to fire departments for public safety presentations. For information about borrowing please see the homepage of this guide.
