All programs are held in the Children’s Library Program Room unless otherwise noted. Children may go into the program room by themselves, but we encourage the parents to stay in the Children’s Library while their child is in programming. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by someone 13 years of age or older in the Children’s Library.

We provide a relaxed environment for children and parents to share the love of books. We encourage parents to participate with their children and be good role models for behavior. We keep our door open to encourage children to wander in and listen or wander out to explore if they are finished listening. It is up to the parent to decide when to leave the room in order not to disturb other listeners.
