Children's Programs Policy
Children’s programs are planned by library staff with expertise in offering programs for children. All programs are designed to provide a pleasurable experience for children; assist in developing early literacy skills; and to increase exposure to books and the library. Specific goals are planned for each program. Program effectiveness will be reviewed periodically. Comments are welcome so that staff may better meet the needs of the community.
Since programs are planned to meet the developmental needs and interests of targeted age groups, it is in the best interests of all to honor the age requirements specified for each program. Participants must be the age specified at the start of the program.
Since Wethersfield residents support the library through their tax dollars, when a program has limited capacity, Wethersfield children will be registered before those from out of town.
Parents/caregivers may be asked to stay with their children during the program, or to remain in the library during the program. This is for the well-being of the children.
