Children’s programs are planned by library staff who have an expertise in offering programs for
children. Programs are designed to provide a positive and pleasurable experience for children;
assist in developing literacy skills; and convey the idea that books, reading, and the Library are
valuable. Specific goals are planned for each program. Program effectiveness will be reviewed
periodically. Comments are welcome so that staff may better meet the needs of the community.
Since programs are planned to meet the developmental needs and interests of targeted age
groups, it is in the best interests of all to honor the age requirements specified for each program.
Participants must be the age specified at the start of the program.
Since Wethersfield residents support the library through their tax dollars, when a program has
limited capacity, Wethersfield children will be registered before those from out of town.
Parents/caregivers are asked to remain in the library while their child is attending a program and
may be asked to stay with their child during a program. This is for the safety and well-being of
