Participation in activities is free and optional for kids who spend after school hours at the library. Kids may also opt to read, work on homework, check out a laptop for up to two hours, or use our public computers. Though the Youth Wing is fully staffed, children in the Youth Wing are not formally supervised outside of the Youth Auditorium activities.

Please consider whether your child is mature enough to handle being unsupervised in a public space before sending them to the library after school.

The activity bus stops at the library!  Please check the activity bus schedule for your child's school.

Keep your child safe

Children under 8 must be supervised by someone 12 years of age or older. If left unattended, you will be notified. If unreachable, the police will be called. Ensure your child knows how to contact you and that the library has your contact information.

Before you allow your child to come to the library after school, please review:

Inappropriate behavior

Discipline and safety is a partnership between the library and parents. If your child engages in behavior that's unsafe, disruptive, or disrespectful, you will be contacted and you must plan to pick up your child. Your child will remain with library staff until you arrive. Repetitive behavior of such kind may be documented and may result in the loss of library privileges.
