 You could have them do a scavenger hunt for books to see who is the best at navigating a library!

Check their website before you go to see if they have any exhibits or special features you especially want to see. Enjoy your trip!

Oh how fun! I like the scavenger hunt idea, and I'd definitely see if they have a map online!

You might want to also see if you can meet with a librarian.  They are usually more than willing to show you other resources the library has like things online or that you can request but wouldn't know about if you didn't ask!

Have fun!
