Registration Guidelines for Children’s Programs

Please honor our age designations. We design our programs for specific age groups and learning levels. We offer programs for specific ages as well as all-ages. We select ages and learning levels so that children will get the most enjoyment based on their abilities. We understand there are families with children in different age ranges, but we offer all-ages programs so that siblings can attend together.

UNATTENDED CHILDREN POLICY FOR LIBRARY PATRONS

The Edison Township Free Public Library welcomes and encourages children to visit the Library, use resources and services, and attend library programs. Staff members are available to help children, however, the Library is not able to provide short or long-term childcare, or be responsible for unattended children.

Unattended children are children of any age who are apparently unaccompanied by a parent, guardian, or responsible caregiver. Children who are unable or unwilling to care for themselves may not be left alone in the Library and must have adequate supervision while in the Library. Parents/caregivers of pre-school children are reminded that their children must be in their direct sight at all times while in the Library. Parents/caregivers of pre-school children attending programs must remain in the building, if not in the room, until the conclusion of library programs.

The Library is not responsible if children leave the Library without an adult.

Children “unable to care for themselves” can include, but are not limited to:

Parents/caregivers are responsible for the safety, behavior and supervision of their children at all times in the Library and are the best judges of their children’s ability to care for themselves.

Parents/caregivers will be contacted if:
