Guidelines for Age-Specific Programs
The goal for our age-specific programs is to provide a developmentally-appropriate space for children. We understand that this can be challenging with children of multiple ages in the family so we have intentionally created multi-age programs and as flexible as possible guidelines to help meet your family’s needs and our program goals.
- Younger and older siblings can attend most of our programs as long as they are not disruptive. At least one child you bring should be in the age-group for program.
- Most of our programs require an adult to attend with the child. Programs with an asterisk * are geared for children to attend independently. Younger siblings cannot attend these programs. Parents should remain in the library during the program.
Sing, Play and Dance: Mondays at 10 a.m. for ages 0-5
