Please read below for registration policies


Weekly Storytimes

All weekly storytimes are switching from online registration to a first-come, first-served basis. When the room capacity for a program is reached, the program is full for that day. 

Special Storytimes and Other Kids Programs

Unless otherwise stated, our Kids Programs require online registration. Many of these special themed programs have enough supplies for a certain amount of kids and are meant for a certain age and skill level. When registering, please make sure you are entering the correct number of children that are attending, as we may not have enough supplies to accomodate extra. Wait lists will be established in the event someone cancels, but there is no guarantee. Because we have a small allotment of funds for programming provided by the Friends of Charlton Library, we cannot always add an extra program for those on the wait list.
