Registration for programs takes place at the Youth Services Desk in person or by calling 262-754-1814. In the event that we need to close registration, our waiting list policy is to take children/families on a first-come, first-serve basis at the beginning of the program. Sign in with a Youth Services librarian and we will notify you if there is room available. If you register for a program and cannot attend, please let library staff know. For all programs, please arrive before the program begins. We reserve the right to refuse admittance once a program has begun. We appreciate your cooperation.
