How do I register my child?  Call the library @ 715-463-2244, stop in the library, or email .

Why are we requiring registration?  In 2021, the library made a twofold decision to require registration for summer events.  First, it helps the library staff plan for how many attendees a program will have.  Second, all of our indoor programs have a maximum capacity for programming this summer.  The staff wants all attendees and volunteers to feel welcome and safe participating in our events this year.

What if I didn’t register my child?  Can they still come?  Call the library and ask!  If the program is not already full, we would love for your child to attend events at the library this summer.  Registration is open until the time the event begins each week unless the program has met capacity.

Why is there an age requirement for the Tuesday afternoon programming?  Per the current Pandemic Policy, “patrons must be 9 years or older to visit the library unattended”.   In addition, the programming on Tuesday afternoons is geared for patrons ages 9 and up.  Questions?  Please contact the library @ 715-463-2244.
