Parents or Caregivers are required to remain in the library
while children are in programs.

Please take a moment to read our Policy on Unattended Children.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Patrons can register another patron if they have that patron’s library card. Caregivers with EMPL Library cards can register an out-of-district child that they care for with their library card and the child’s proof of age. If you are wait-listed for a program, you will be contacted if space becomes available.

All registrations are limited to one class per day and one on-going program. All registrations begin at 9:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted. Programs are limited to 25 children unless otherwise noted. Programs may be cancelled due to inadequate registration. Non-residents may inquire about availability one week prior to the program. If you have any questions about program guidelines such as age, grade or caregiver, call us first before arriving for a program. Our librarians are pleased to help you make your child’s library experiences positive and happy!

**PLEASE NOTE** Library cards can now be issued to children of all ages. Children must have an East Meadow Library card to register for programs. Most programs require prior registration. AFTER the first day of registration, patrons may sign up over the phone by calling (516) 794-2570 ext. 6.
