Town Tribune Library Column -- January 10, 2019

Program Registration

   Our library has had online registration for programs for a few months now.  It has made many of our patrons happy that they can sign up for programs outside of library hours.  If there is anyone who does not own a computer or is not comfortable using one, please do not hesitate to call us and we can register for you if there is a program you are interested in attending.

   We can’t stress enough how important it is to register for programs. This time of year with questionable weather can create problems with library programs due to closures, a presenter cancels the program due to the weather conditions, car trouble or illness. When it comes to a craft, floral arranging, or program where the presenter has handouts, we need to know how many people will be attending so that we can have the correct amount of supplies or literature on hand. Sometimes the programs are limited to a certain number of participants because the presenter has a class limit or there is a limit due to the room capacity.  When it comes to story time programs, the library staff member may become ill, their children may be ill, or they may take a vacation, etc.  We don’t want you to bring a child out, especially in bad weather, only to find out that there is no program when you got to the library.

   Part of the registration process is giving a phone number and email address.  If a program has to be cancelled, we immediately call to let you know of the change.  If you decide to attend and didn’t register, we can’t call you.  Please, now that it is the new year, let’s start out fresh and if there is a program you’d like to attend, use the registration process so that can be connected and notify you if there is an issue.  Thank you for your consideration and cooperation.
