Parents or Caregivers are required to stay in the library
while children are in programs.
Please take a moment to read our Policy on Unattended Children.
Every registration for a pre-kindergarten age child requires the child's birth certificate or proof of age card and parent's valid East Meadow library card. Every registration for a child in Grades K-6 requires the child's valid East Meadow library card. Check the required birth dates for our programs. No phone registrations will be taken. Non-residents may inquire about availability one week prior to the program. Programs may be canceled due to inadequate registration.
**You may only register for ONE on-going program per child. **
**Policy Change** You may only register your children plus 1 additional child for all of our programs. Thank you.
