Grandparents

TIPS FOR A SUCESSFUL VISIT TO THE LIBRARY WITH YOUR GRANDCHILDREN:

  • Bring your library card, the child's card, or the parent's card.  (We cannot look up a parent's library card so a child can check out materials.)  If you don't have a library card it is easy to get one.  A parent or legal guardian must be present for a child to apply for a library card. 
  • Ask the Librarian for reading, listening, and viewing recommendations.  We are here to help!
  • Attend a story time or other program.
