Parents or Caregivers are required to remain in the library
while children are in programs.
 
Please take a moment to read our Policy on Unattended Children.
 

REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Registration for all programs is online at eastmeadow.info. Children must have an East Meadow Public Library card to register for programs. Children of all ages can be issued a library card. 

Please register each child separately using their own library card.  

Caregivers with EMPL Library cards can register an out-of-district child that they care for with their library card and the child’s proof of age. If you are wait-listed for a program, you will be contacted if space becomes available.

All registrations are limited to one class per day and one on-going program. All registrations begin at 10:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.  Programs may be cancelled due to inadequate registration. Non-residents may inquire about availability one week prior to the program. If you have any questions about program guidelines such as age, grade or caregiver, call us first before arriving for a program. Our librarians are pleased to help you make your child’s library experiences positive and happy!
