Class Pass

Teachers can book a free introductory tour of their local library and use a GRT Class Pass to get students there and back.

GRT offers teachers and their classes, from Kindergarten to Grade 8, a free bus ride on regularly scheduled bus routes for an introductory library tour. This program is available from October to June for trips within the Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo service areas.

Note: Class Pass accommodates a maximum of 35 students per trip. This program is only available for an introductory visit, not regular library trips.

Book a library tour

Book early, at least two weeks in advance, to get your preferred introductory tour date and time. See the list for participating libraries.
