Because of space limitations in meeting rooms, to be sure of seating, it’s important to plan an early arrival time. For some programs where a small group is desirable, such as “Baby Story Time” and hands-on technology, registration is necessary. These programs are noted in the dateLines listing as “registration required.” To register, simply call or visit the branch during the week preceding the program.


Appropriate accommodations for individuals with disabilities will be provided upon request.  Eight business days’ notice prior to the event is requested.
