Age Limits & Guidelines
Staff will communicate the age limits in the Library, at the door, in press releases, in Library publications and on the Library web site.
For preschool and younger programs or programs for all ages, parent participation is expected and younger siblings are allowed. Occasionally, at an all ages program, when the room is full, staff may ask if some parents might give up a seat for children who would be otherwise turned away. For school-aged programs, younger siblings are not allowed, and parents are sometimes asked to remain outside the community room.
We recognize that there may be extenuating circumstances. However, as noted above, there are a variety of reasons for the age limits, so making a different decision about age limits can be a complicated and often last minute decision. Parents are discouraged from expecting an exception and should understand that exceptional maturity of an individual child is not a reason for an exception. Questions can be referred to the Youth Services Manager.
In the interest of fairness to all, age limits are enforced. Thank you for your cooperation.
