Tips for a Successful Visit with Your Grandchildren

  • Bring your library card, the child's card, or the parent's card. (We can't look up a parent's library card so a child can check out materials.) If you don't have a library card, it's easy to get one. Just use our online application. A parent or legal guardian must be present for a child to apply for a library card.
  • Ask the Children's Librarian for reading, listening, and viewing recommendations. We're here to help!
  • Attend a storytime or other program. Prepare to be entertained by and with your grandchild.
