Online Registration for Programs

Starting June 1, the Library has a new web-based system for our calendar of events. The new calendar allows you to

  • register for programs online
  • get email reminders of programs you've signed up for, and
  • cancel your registration if you are unable to attend a program

You can see how many spaces are available for programs and get automatically signed-up on a waiting list if a program is full. From the home page, select Events/Programs to access the new calendar of events. If you don't care to register yourself online, Library staff can still register you or cancel your registration over the phone or in person. (It will be easier and more streamlined for staff to use too!)
